#IWasThereJG - #NASCAR Race Mom

2015 is going to be an exciting and emotional year as Jeff Gordon runs his final season competing for a NASCAR championship.  Right now, you can share your special moments and memories from Jeff’s career using the #IWasThereJG on social media!

Yup #IWasThereJG!

NASCAR Race Mom was lucky enough to be there when Jeff Gordon became the first five-time NASCAR winner at Indy, snatching the lead from Hendrick Motorsports teammate Kasey Kahne on a restart with 17 laps remaining and holding on for his second Sprint Cup victory this season and the 90th of his career!

I was able to capture that Iconic NASCAR Moment on the video above as I watched from victory Lane.   I was also on track as Gordon and his family and team kissed the bricks!

Yup #IWasThereJG!

NASCAR Race Mom has never had the pleasure of meeting Jeff Gordon in person.  However, I do have the fond memory of speaking with him via the telephone! 

I won a prize in the Pepsi ‘Max It Now’ Sweepstakes.  
“Hello, this is Jeff Gordon,” our conversation started. “How are you doing?” he asked. I am sure that this NASCAR legend had no idea just how great I was feeling. Jeff Gordon presented himself so at ease and polite, he immediately calmed my nerves.
