En español | Colorful and cool might say it best. In this slide show of photographs by Simon Bruty, Jeff Gordon and his Hendrick Motorsports team go through a typical routine before and on race day as they prepare for this year's NASCAR Sprint Cup Brickyard 400. Whether suited and helmeted for the race or advocating for the Drive to End Hunger, Gordon never loses his steely gaze on the ultimate goal: getting #24 to the checkered flag first.
Members of the Hendrick Motorsports support team use computer analysis to check vital operating systems of the #24 Chevrolet in the Gordon garage. What does Gordon think of his crew? "You have a race car that drives like that one, it makes me look like a hero, but they're the [heroes] in my mind." — Photo by Simon Bruty
