Book Description
Jeff Gordon entered his first car race when he was only five years old, an age when most children are learning to ride a bike. From that time onward, he's been a champion in his chosen sport. From the quarter midget cars of his childhood, he moved on to go-carts, then sprint cars, and finally midget cars. Then, in 1991, he got his first taste of stock-car racing - and never looked back. After a few years of getting his feet wet in the Busch Grand National scene, he vaulted into the Winston Cup ring. In 1995, he was the youngest driver of the modern era ever to win the coveted Winston Cup. Two years later he proved his abilities were no fluke when he won the title again.
