En español | Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday: Ricky Bobby, Will Ferrell's character in the 2006 comedy Talladega Nights, won't be there, but Jeff Gordon will.
The NASCAR champ is geared up to better his highest finish at the Alabama racetrack — eighth place last year.
Gordon has joined AARP and AARP Foundation in the Drive to End Hunger campaign. This is the fourth of 22 races in which Gordon will compete with the Drive to End Hunger car.
The program aims 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, Alabama has the seventh highest percentage of seniors at risk of going hungry.
How to donate: Visit a participating Winn-Dixie in the Talladega area until Sunday to purchase a filled grocery bag of food to be distributed by the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama to help feed hungry seniors.
