NASCAR Fans in California Cozy Up to the #24 AARP Drive to End Hunger Car

See driver Jeff Gordon's stand-in at a food drive

NASCAR fans are infamously zealous, and fans of four-time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon are no exception. Recently they turned out in force in Fontana, Calif., for an AARP Food Drive ahead of the Auto Club 400, where the star of the event was Gordon's No. 24 AARP Drive to End Hunger car. Second Harvest Food Bank of Riverside and San Bernardino Counties collected 300 pounds of food and more than $4,500 at the event, and the Drive to End Hunger chipped in another $10,000.



Lots of fans come to NASCAR events armed with a camera, hoping to grab plenty of souvenir shots. Donald Andrews of Fontana turned out for the big day with his own camera, but here he pauses for a moment to snap to for a portrait with the AARP Drive to End Hunger No. 24 car.
