Behind the Scenes With Jeff Gordon

See how #24 and his team prepare the Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet — and themselves — for race day

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.

 

Kicking It

A tracking camera blurs all but the #24 car as it speeds around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the race. The fastest-ever recorded lap at the Brickyard 400 was just over 186 mph, but winning drivers typically average 140 to 150 mph per lap. — Photo by Simon Bruty
