Jeff Gordon

Jeff Gordon is a four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and, with 86 career wins, is one of the world’s most recognizable drivers. Gordon began his racing career at the age of five and had won 35 main events by age six. His penchant for success continued throughout his career, emphasized by his rank of third on all-time wins list.
Gordon’s success extends far beyond the racetrack. Inspired by his crew chief’s son’s battle with leukemia in 1992, he began supporting a variety of organizations over two decades ago. In 1999, Jeff established the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation to aid in the fight against pediatric cancer. With the Foundation’s support, organizations are able to improve patients’ quality of life, provide essential treatments, and conduct medical research that brings us closer to a cure every day.

The Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation has contributed over $11 million to foundations that support children battling cancer.
