Stops And (Re)starts
April 12 - - Kevin Harvick dominated the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway by leading 239 of the 374 laps. However, it took a second green/white/checkered restart before he took the lead for the final time to score his second win of the season. Jeff Gordon seemed to have a car to challenge Harvick at times, but faded late in the race after brushing the wall. Gordon, who led 8 laps during the race, opted for two tires and track position for a restart with less than 10 laps remaining. However, he struggled on the restarts and faded to finish 7th. It was his 6th top-10 finish in 8 races. Gordon remains the points leader by 1 point over Matt Kenseth. "Towards the end we started fading," Gordon said. "I got in the wall and flattened the right side. From there our night went downhill. We made some mistakes and got behind. We were the last car on 2 tires and we got ate up on those restarts. Actually, that last one wasn't bad to come home 7th, I thought it was going to be a lot worse than that. So, it's good to be leading the points. I feel like it's a missed opportunity, but another great race car and I'm happy about that."

    Fight On Against Pediatric Cancer
    As you may know, I didn't start a website about Jeff Gordon with the intention of raising money to fight pediatric cancer. Two years ago, Jackson Panzarello forever altered the course of my life. Jackson's battle against cancer sparked my efforts to give more children a fighting chance against the disease. I have many teammates who open their hearts and wallets every time I have a pediatric cancer fundraising event. Whether you've donated $5, $500, or $5,000, your continued support means to the world to me. My fundraising efforts are directly tied to the power of teamwork. It is truly, as the inscription at Hendrick Motorsports reads, "the fuel that allows common people to produce uncommon results." Please consider a donation and join our team in the fight against pediatric cancer.

    Oct 24-28: A long weekend in Southern California in honor of the inspiration who put me on this incredible path to make a difference in the fight against childhood cancer. It was humbling to read the piece on USC's website about my pediatric cancer fundraising efforts in honor of Jackson Panzarello to support The Jeff Gordon Children's Foundation, Kick-It, and CureSearch.
