DALLAS - Hundreds of die-hard fans crammed into Klyde Warren Park for Jeff Gordon Day in Dallas. They got a chance to see a victory burnout up close and personal!

“Jeff is an athlete that transcends our sport,” said Eddie Gossage, President of the Texas Motor Speedway, “There’s two more chances to see him at Texas Motor Speedway and we just wanted to get him here and let him know how much we appreciate him, and a lot of different presentations for him.”

It’s the final victory laps for NASCAR superstar Jeff Gordon, who announced this would be his last season of racing back in January.

TMS showed their support for the driver of the #24 car, even bringing in Dallas’ most famous #24, former Cowboy Everson Walls, who brought along a custom Cowboys jersey for Gordon.

“I’m really proud of what I’ve done in racing and to have others recognize it, it means the world.” said Gordon “To have fans out there wearing your stuff and cheering for you and then to have them to recognize this as Jeff Gordon Day… all I can say is it’s very cool!”

Yep, almost as cool as driving fast cars for a living!

So whether Jeff ends up taking his talents and knowledge into the broadcasting booth, or he just starts pulling pranks on unsuspecting car dealers for a living, you better believe these fans will always be repping #24!
