Jeff Gordon at Fontana
The last time NASCAR champ Jeff Gordon lined up at the Auto Club Speedway he didn't do as well as he wanted.
With the help of his No. 24 Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet, he hopes to change that and take first place at the race track in Fontana, Calif.
Gordon, who took second place two years ago at the Sprint Cup Series in Fontana, has joined AARP and AARP Foundation in the Drive to End Hunger campaign. This is the third 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.
California ranks as 18th among the 50 states where seniors are at risk of going hungry. The Drive to End Hunger campaign kicked off race week with a food drive on Thursday.
