As you all probably know by now, Jeff Gordon announced that 2015 will be his final season. Joey was quoted as saying "i always wanted to be Jeff Gordon" Truth is, if Joey is even half of Jeff Gordon he is going to have an amazing career. Obvivously the numbers speak for themselves but if i was going to say something about the impact that Jeff Gordon has had i would say that if i was going to build a Mount Rushmore of Nascar drivers, Jeff Gordon would be on it..along with Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt Sr and David Pearson.
Was shocked to hear that this will be Jeff's final run at the championship, especially considering how strong Jeff is still running
Jeff Gordon has had a long and illustrious career, but between his bad back and his relatively bad luck, as far as championships go, in the past decade or so, it shouldn't have been a huge surprise, but it was a shock to many, including myself. Today's announcement was no surprise, though. If anyone could build on the legacy of the 24, it's Chase Elliott.

I think Jr. said it best in that when the best of the best retire, there is a strange feeling left behind; of how strange it will be not to see Gordon in the 24 anymore.
