This Sunday, we can see something that is so rare in sports. Something that when talked about, it gets the attention of everyone, including people that are outside the sport. Going out on top is what we all dream of, what we strive for and what we want. Jeff Gordon will get that chance to do just that. He announced in January that this year would be his final shot at his 5th championship. He’s chased after this title for 13 years, just hoping one year can be the year. Now, at the final chapter of his storied career, three drivers and 400 laps stands between him and the storybook ending he wants.
For me as a fan of his for two decades, Sunday is gonna truly be emotional. I honestly don’t know how I am going to feel, especially when he climbs out of that race car for the final time. I have looked up to this guy as a kid that was a loner in school and could relate to not being liked as Jeff was mercilessly booed back then. Thinking of the wins he got and the way he got him, including the final one at Martinsville on the same day that I got engaged. I have such a deep connection with that car that I can only be immensely thankful for the incredible career Jeff has put forth on the race track. And there is only one way I want it to end; in grand, championship style.
I know there will be a few people that are going to rage over the song that I picked for this, but I have been saving it for something special. Jeff’s final race and the chance of him going out on top is the absolute perfect time for it. If you don’t like it, keep it to yourself. Thank you and I hope everyone enjoys the work I put into this fan made commercial. Good luck Jeff!
