I came across a comment today that said although nascar.com lists Tony as being 5' 9" that he's really more like 5'5". I figured I'd go to the source I'd most believe; the regulars on here!(If Maro says he's 5' 5", I'll believe her.)

So, how tall/short is he?

I don't think he's taller than I am and I'm just about 5'9.

So here's the best comparison I could come up with.

Ryan Newman is listed as 5'11 everywhere. Here are the two of them standing together.

Otherwise here's another semi good comparison:

Jimmie is supposedly 5'11 and Kevin is 5'10 while Gordon is 5'7.

So I'd say he's probably right around 5'9.

He's 5'8 or 5'9. I'm 5'7 and he's about an inch or so taller than me.

Thanks! I knew you guys would know.(Btw, I'm shocked Gordon is so short! I've never compared the drivers to each other in terms of height, and since he's married to a model, I just pictured him taller. I see now, with him standing with the other drivers, he is a little guy!)

My guess--when standing in close proximity to him--was about 5'8" or 5'9". I'm only 5'2"--pretty much everyone seems tall to me, LOL! He was definitely taller than Gordon.

oh my gosh Jeff is short I just thought Mrs. Gordon was all legs. Ella will be taller than dad by the age of 12!!
Did you hear him say on an interview today that maybe next year they would work on #2.
Sounded like he had fun on Seasame street! I bet Ella loved it.
He especially got a kick out of the producers thinking he was retired!

Tony is around 5'7". He is the same as Jeff I think. Just not very tall compared to some. But hey great things come in small packages. LOL

I'm about 5'2" also, and he was considerably taller than I am. But as Kristina says, pretty much everyone is.

I agree, he's about my height-5'7" or 5'8" or at least, he was that height 2 years ago when I met him. I might be a tad shorter now but he's probably the same...that aging thing you know. LOL

I read his bio and it said 5'9" ht, 170 wt.(give or take) LOL Jr is 5'11" and I've seen pictures of them together and they look to be the same as my husband and I. He 5'11" and I'm 5'8".
I think Jeff wears lifts in his shoes when he's not racing. Or so I've heard.

My daughter saw Jeff Gordon walking by at one of the races she was at, and she said he made her husband look like a giant compared to Jeff. And, my son-in-law is not that tall.

I've noticed that when they show him before a race with his wife she's at least 3-4" taller, then when you see him in pictures outside of racing with her, he is as tall as she. Alot of guys wear lifts. Even that crazy Tom Cruise. It just goes to show that there are guys out there that are as vain as alot of women about how they look.

It is rumored that Napoleon Bonaparte wore heels to appear taller! Maybe Jeff is the Napoleon of racing.

What if I said he was 3' 5"?

Well, apparently Ella Gordon is in my nephew's nursery school play group. I'll tell my BIL and SIL to do a quick height estimate next time they see Jeff!
