Jeff Gordon, a four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and five-time winner at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, will have a day and parade in his honor on Thursday, July 23, in Pittsboro, Indiana.
Gordon is in the midst of his final full season behind the wheel and visiting on his "Victory Tour" in advance of a final appearance on July 26 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Brickyard 400.
When Gordon was 14 years old, he and his family relocated to Pittsboro to further Gordon's racing career. The driver went on to superstardom and members of the Pittsboro community continue to follow their hero in the No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet SS.
In conjunction with the town of Pittsboro, Indianapolis Motor Speedway is staging a parade in Gordon's honor on Jeff Gordon Day (as designated by the town) at noon on Main Street. Fans are encouraged to line the parade route.
