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

NASCAR champ speeds to victory in AdvoCare 500

Jeff Gordon at Martinsville Speedway

Jeff Gordon and his No. 24 Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet are gearing up for another chance at a title at the Martinsville Speedway Sunday. He knows the territory well: Gordon set a Sprint Cup Race record at the Ridgeway, Va., track in 1996 and has won seven times overall.

The NASCAR champ has joined AARP and AARP Foundation in the Drive to End Hunger campaign. This is the fourth of 22 races that Gordon will compete in 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.

 Virginia ranks as 22th among the 50 states where seniors are at risk of going hungry.

How to donate: Visit a participating Kroger grocery store in the Martinsville area until April 3, 2011, to buy an already-filled grocery bag of food. The food will be donated to local food pantries.
