Gordon’s historic NASCAR Cup Series career started 20 years ago at Atlanta Motor Speedway as the young driver burst onto scene in the rainbow-colored Hendrick Motorsports No. 24 DuPont Chevrolet. The following season, Gordon started to take the motorsports world by storm. Now, 20 years later with four championships and 87 career victories under his belt, Gordon will race the commemorative No. 24 Imron® Elite Chevrolet only one time at the Talladega Superspeedway. Gordon, Hendrick Motorsports and DuPont Performance Coatings are celebrating their 21st full season together - the longest current running driver/owner/sponsor partnership in NASCAR.
Gordon was successful winning the final race of the 2012 season in the silver 20th Anniversary paint scheme on the No. 24 Chevrolet and is hoping for a repeat in the Imron® Elite Chevrolet at Talladega.
