Jeff Gordon and No. 24 Drive to End Hunger Car Win in Atlanta

NASCAR champ speeds to victory in AdvoCare 500

The last time Jeff Gordon was at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina, he broke out of a season-long funk and landed the top spot at the starting line. Although he didn't win the Coca-Cola 600 last year, the qualifying round gave him a much-needed boost for the rest of the Sprint Cup Series.

This year, Brad Keselowski took the pole for the Coca-Cola 600, but that won't stop Gordon in his Drive to End Hunger.

This is the fourth of 22 races in which Gordon will compete with the Drive to End Hunger car. Gordon joined the campaign with AARP and AARP Foundation with the goal to stamp out hunger among older Americans.

More than 6 million seniors struggle to get enough food, and they often are forced to skip meals. Among the 50 states, North Carolina has the ninth highest percentage of seniors at risk of going hungry.
How to help: Aren't able to participate in a food drive? Donate directly to the campaign.

See Jeff: Look for the Drive to End Hunger tent in uptown Charlotte at Food Lion Speed Street May 27-28 from noon to 11 pm. See the #24 Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet and bring your camera to get your picture taken with the car.
