Jeff Gordon

Jeff gordon Nascar masterBorn Jeffrey Michael Gordon on August 4, 1971 in Vallejo, California, the legendary #24 Chevrolet Monte Carlo driver has become a four-time NASCAR NEXTEL Cup racing champ and perhaps the most famous driver in the sport of racing.

Before the age of five, Gordon was already dreaming of NASCAR glory when he and his family packed up for Indiana so that young Gordy could compete in races specifically geared to under-age drivers.

Still in his teens, Gordon racked up three short-track victories and took the USAC Midget Car Racing Rookie of the Year title in 1989. Two years later, at age 20, he became the youngest driver to win the USAC Silver Crown title.

Gordon soon realized his ultimate goal when he entered the NASCAR Busch Series and set NASCAR record by qualifying for 11 pole positions in one season. The following year, he took his first Winston Cup win and in 1993 was recognized as Rookie of the Year.

The first step toward the status of racing legend finally came in 1995 when Gordon at age 24 won the first of four NASCAR Winston Cup Championships. Only two other drivers claim more - Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt - both with seven titles.

In 2004, Gordon added to his growing list of accolades by becoming the only NASCAR driver with four Brickyard 400 victories. In 2005, he took home the Daytona 500 trophy for the third time.

Off the track, Jeff Gordon was the subject of tabloid headlines in 2002 for a much-reported divorce from his wife of seven years, Brooke Sealy. Gordon's most recent romantic interest is girlfriend Ingrid Vandebosch to whom he became engaged in 2006.

The wedding announcement was made the same weekend he ended a months-long losing streak in 2006 by winning the Dodge/Save Mart 350 in June.

In November, Gordon and Vandebosch finally tied the knot in a private wedding ceremony in Mexico.
