When Gordon was six months old, his mother and father divorced. In the 1970s, his mother remarried to a man named John Bickford.

He won 51 races when he was eight years old, in 1979. He won all 25 races he entered when he was 11 years old. He became bored with this and began waterskiing.

He ran cross country for his high school.

He began full-time racing in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series in 1993. In 1997, 1999, and 2005, he won the Daytona 500. His 93 career victories put him third all-time in Winston Cup wins, the most in NASCAR’s modern era from 1972 to the present. With 81 pole positions, he is the most successful active driver. With at least one pole position in 23 consecutive seasons, he holds a NASCAR record. Several outlets and fans of the sport consider him to be one of the best NASCAR drivers of all time.

Jeff also owns a portion of his racing team and is the first driver to earn more than $100 million in the Cup series. Gordon announced that 2015 would be his final full-time season as a driver, though he did not rule out retiring from the sport entirely. In 2016, he was a substitute driver for Dale Earnhardt Jr. He was the overall winner of the Rolex 24 at Daytona in 2017.

Private Life

Gorden met Miss Winston Cup model Brooke Sealey in 1993 at the Daytona Speedway after winning two qualifying races for the Daytona 500. They had to date in secret because NASCAR prohibits drivers from dating the models. Sealey’s reign as Miss Winston Cup came to an end at the end of the 1993 season. The couple then made their relationship public. Gordon proposed to her a year after their first meeting. On November 26, 1994, they tied the knot. Sealey filed for divorce five and a half years later, alleging that Gordon had engaged in marital misconduct, specifically his relationship with another model named Deanna Merryman. The divorce between Gordon and Sealey was finalised in June 2003.

 

He began dating Ingrid Vandebosch in 2004. They got engaged in June 2006 and married on November 7, 2006, in a private ceremony in Mexico. In June 2007, Vandebosch gave birth to their first child, a daughter named Ella Sofia. Leo Benjamin, the couple’s son, was born in August 2010.

 

Gordon is a resurrected Christian. His race car’s steering wheel is covered in Bible verses.

He founded the Jeff Gordon Children’s Hospital in Concord, North Carolina, in December 2006.

Gordon’s net worth is likely to be lower than many of his fans believe. Jeff’s divorce from ex-wife Brooke Gordon is to blame for this.
