Lots of history and good photos, thanks. Was Jeff born and raised in that area or California.

Born in CA, but familily moved him to Pittsboro IN sometime during his mid-teens. It was easier for the teenage Gordon to get sprint car rides in the Mid West.

Born in 1971 and you can see some of those dates on the photos from the collection! Today, I think we lose sight of just how good Gordon was, as a teen age kid driving those open wheel and winged sprints.

Right; although I've always sort of favored him except when he was fooling around in a Ford, I was not aware of his very early accomplishments.
