2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Kentucky

“My wife and I attended the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience at Kentucky and it was outstanding. Jeff is a true professional and always exhibits pure class with his fans. We have followed Jeff since the beginning of his career and were fortunate to have met him once before at a Jeff Gordon fan event at Michigan International Speedway in 2007. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to be able to meet and thank Jeff for many great memories watching his hall of fame career.”

– Mike and Misty B. from Providence, KY (Kentucky Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Kentucky

“I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to meet Jeff Gordon through the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience at Kentucky Speedway. Just a few days after our meeting, I had a surgery scheduled. Meeting Jeff really raised my spirits tremendously. Jeff made the day very special for me. Thank you!”

– Susan D. from Circleville, OH (Kentucky Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Richmond

“I had a great time at the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience. Meeting Jeff was a longtime dream of mine, as I have been a fan since 1996. This was definitely a check off of my bucket list. Thanks!”

– Mary Ann B. from Harrisonburg, VA (Richmond Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Michigan

“I just want to say I really enjoyed meeting Jeff Gordon at Michigan International Speedway through the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience. What an experience! Jeff was so friendly and really seemed to enjoy talking with us and answering our questions. I’m so happy I finally had the chance to meet him in person!”

– Heather T. from Echo Bay, Ontario (Michigan Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Sonoma

“The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was a once in a lifetime opportunity. From start to finish the experience was riveting. This had been a dream of mine and it finally came true. My husband and I were welcomed by fellow Gordon fans initially as we gathered awaiting the hosts. Just listening to all the fans sharing their experiences and personal connections was inspirational not to mention calming as the anticipation built up to meet Jeff.

A huge shout out to the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff. They were very genuine and informative in guiding this process. It was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G to have the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was a memory of a lifetime. Jeff was personable, shared some laughs/stories about his life since retiring and future plans, as well as taking questions from the group before the individual meet & greets took place when we took our photo.

Jeff was amazing. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was everything I had hoped for. I have had the time of my life being a Jeff Gordon fan. I was completely ecstatic to also see our Jeff Gordon VIP Experience photos posted online! Thank you! #24Ever!”

– Marcie C. from Sheridan, CA (Sonoma Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Pocono

“I have been a diehard Jeff Gordon fan since I was a little kid, and after missing out on the opportunity to purchase the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience last year I was so excited to see it being offered again this year despite Jeff retiring. I jumped on it right away, and I am so happy that I did!

I had the pleasure to meet Jeff at the VIP Experience at Pocono Raceway. Although Jeff has a tight schedule, he gave us his undivided attention. Jeff was very down to earth and open to answer all of our groups’ questions. He took the time to take pictures with everyone together and individually, and autograph an item for each of us. I was lucky enough to get him to add to my tattoo with a signature. Thanks Jeff for always making time for your fans! #24Ever!

– Mandi P. from Hawley, PA (Pocono Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Kansas

“Myself and my 2 boys, Andy and Jr went to meet Jeff in Kansas this year through the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience. I must say, we were all so excited to meet the Champ and Legend himself, the boys were glowing with excitement and anticipation and they were star struck when they met him, as was I. Jeff took the time out to talk to all of us and made us all feel special when he signed an item for us and we got our pictures with him. It was a day I will never forget – and neither will my boys. We truly had the “time of our life” that day. From meeting Jeff to going behind-the-scenes to the whole experience as a whole, it was amazing! Thank so much for doing these types of things! I will be back to the see Champ again soon! 24 EVER!”

– Brian S. from Benld, IL (Kansas Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Charlotte 600

“My Charlotte Jeff Gordon VIP Experience continues to impress me. His contact with his fans is beyond anything I have ever seen with drivers before. He also has an outstanding support group that makes you feel a part of whatever is going on. Thank you for the opportunity.”

– Linda P. from Madison, NC (Charlotte Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Charlotte 600

“The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience in Charlotte was awesome. The planning by the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff was flawless. Jeff was very open to questions and gave us a recap of what he is doing with FOX. Jeff signing an item for each person from the group was really fun. It was a first class event. I’ve been a fan since day one of Jeff’s rookie year and have collected over 1,000 pieces of memorabilia since then and still do so. I first met Jeff in 1996 when he had a motorcoach built about 10 miles from my home here in Oregon. Jeff autographed for me then. We also met Rick Hendrick about an hour later on the same day. He was a great person. The timing was perfect. During our recent visit to Charlotte, we also drove out to the Jeff Gordon Children’s Hospital, which is a beautiful place. Thanks again for providing the opportunity to be part of the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience!”

– Dick G. from Eugene, OR (Charlotte Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Dover

“I have been a Jeff Gordon fan for over 20 years. As a child, my mom, who used to work for DuPont, used to bring me some Jeff Gordon merchandise home from her work all the time. Over the years, I was able to collect clothing, die cast cars, coolers, and other awesome Gordon items to show my allegiance to the 24 team. I remember one day, after the 1997 championship, Jeff Gordon was going to be at my mom’s work at the DuPont office buildings in Wilmington, DE for an autograph session. I was so excited to get a chance to meet him until my mom informed me that, since I had school (I was 8 years old at the time), I could not go. I was really bummed she wouldn’t let me skip school to meet him and get his autograph. My mom did make up for it by getting me my first Jeff Gordon autograph that day but I was still bummed at not being able to meet him.

I tried multiple times since then to get a chance to meet Jeff and came close in 2012 during a Pepsi Max contest where I finished runner up in the contest (1st place got to meet Jeff at the fall Martinsville race that year).

Fast forward to last year, I still had not met Jeff and he had just announced his final season. Unfortunately, everyone else had the same idea I had and the VIP Experience for Jeff’s final season was all sold out. So this year, when they announced that the experience would be offered again, I jumped at the opportunity. My wife purchased this for me as my Christmas/Birthday present and let me tell you it was worth every penny!

You always get nervous when you meet a childhood hero of yours that they won’t measure up to your expectations. Well, Jeff exceeded those expectations. Jeff was really cool and down to earth. You can tell he is truly grateful for his fans. He answered questions and then signed my Jeff Gordon Dover win die cast (which was a race win version from his win in 2014, my first time seeing him win in person). We then all got to get a picture with him to remember the experience. He even took a picture with my 24 tattoo and he thought that it was really awesome (so did my tattoo artist!).

I have experienced some awesome things in NASCAR such as having hot pit passes, garage tours, victory lane celebrations and other autograph sessions, but this is probably the best event I have ever experienced. Totally worth the money and any other Gordon fans out there that are on the fence about this experience, all I have to say is do it! You will not regret it!”

– Joe P. from Wilmington, DE (Dover Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Kansas

“I’ve been a Jeff Gordon fan since the beginning and the chance to meet him through the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience after all these years was a dream come true. Jeff is a most gracious host and the time he takes to spend personally with his fans is proof of that! My friends who follow other drivers are jealous of the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience! Thanks Jeff! #24EVER!”

– Mona F. from Des Moines, IA (Kansas Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Texas

“I have been a Jeff Gordon fan since 2000 when I became an avid NASCAR fan and started watching on television and going to NASCAR races. My husband and I have gone to a few different tracks with other family members even on the east coast and we have always cheered for Jeff Gordon. We were in Texas in April 2009 when Jeff won the race there. I’ve always been one of his biggest fans wearing his t-shirts all the time so everyone knew who my favorite driver was.

I have been in his fan club also and enjoyed the extra special gifts that come with belonging to the club. This April in Texas, I was able to be one of the lucky few that was able to meet Jeff Gordon in person. I was so thrilled and had already read lots of testimonials that said that Jeff was such a nice, down to earth guy. I found that out for myself at the 2016 Jeff Gordon VIP Experience in Texas and was very glad to be among the group that was there. Jeff even asked us to come in closer to talk and ask questions.

If you have the opportunity to be part of the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience, you will be very glad that you did it! I know that I am! Thank you to Jeff Gordon for making himself available to fans and thank you to the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience Staff for putting this on for the fans who love Jeff Gordon. It was wonderful and I would definitely do this again if I have the opportunity!”

– RoseAnn F. from Rio Rancho, NM (Texas Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Talladega

“I came to the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience with my 81 year old mother that has been a Jeff Gordon fan since his first race in the Cup series when he was in the rainbow car. She was thrilled when Jeff raced the rainbow scheme one last time at Bristol last year. My boys were raised watching Jeff Gordon & NASCAR races since day one. My oldest son, Christopher, used to stand in front of the TV before he was two years old with his little finger pointing out the yellow 24 on the screen lap after lap. Then, my second son came along & did the same thing. So, for the three of them to get to meet Jeff Gordon was almost better than me meeting him. I have been a huge fan since 1992, so for me to meet him was an awesome day. I will miss Jeff driving on the track, but can respect his decision. Thank you for taking time out to meet with your fans. You have not let me down since day one & after meeting you in person I am sure you never will. Thanks to Jeff & Ingrid for always letting your fans be part of your personal life with the photos shared of Ella & Leo. My Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was awesome! Jeff Gordon and #24 for life!”

– Debbie H. from Armington, IL (Talladega Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Richmond

“I really enjoyed the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience at Richmond International Raceway. The whole affair was great from start to finish. I do not walk good for long walks anymore, but the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff kindly assisted by transporting me via golf cart from the nearby parking area to the meeting area and back to my car. Jeff took his time with our group and answered questions for us. He made us all feel at ease and comfortable the whole time he was with us.

Again, I enjoyed the whole Jeff Gordon VIP Experience. I think (I know) that any Jeff fan would really enjoy the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience like I did. I must say thank you to a very good and longtime “FRIEND” of mine who gave me this Jeff Gordon VIP Experience for which I thank her very much! Thanks for the great time!”

– Robert J. from Roanoke Rapids, NC (Richmond Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Bristol

“I recently purchased the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience for Bristol Motor Speedway, and I can wholeheartedly say that it is the best purchase that I have ever made! Every aspect of the experience was professional and top-notch, but the highlight of course was Jeff himself. Never before did I think that I would have the opportunity to meet and spend up-close and personal quality time with my hero. Jeff has done so much good for so many people, and his genuine personality shines even more in person. He was generous and kind with his fans and told the group stories that both entertained and enlightened us. Every single Jeff Gordon fan needs to attend at least one VIP Experience, because it will make you an even bigger fan of his than before (and yes, I didn’t think that was possible either)! From the moment you enter the VIP Experience, you are treated like a true VIP. It felt like Jeff became a friend this day, and that is the best experience I could ever ask for!”

– Taylor G. from Maryville, TN (Bristol Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Richmond

“Moose has always been a HUGE Jeff Gordon fan, and she had been trying to get his autograph for years. He has been her “man” since he began racing. When I heard about the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience, I knew she would love to do that. She turns 50 this year and part of her BIG birthday present was to be part of the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience. I am not good at keeping things a secret, but this one I did. When I gave her the ticket and told her we were going, she was super excited. We own a restaurant and it is hard for us to both get away sometimes, luckily we found a way and I am so glad she was able to check that off her bucket list. He made her birthday EXTRA special by writing, “HAPPY 50TH!” on her helmet, something she will forever treasure. We recommend the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience to anyone who is a fan of racing. Thank you to Jeff Gordon and the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff for providing us with a once in a lifetime opportunity with such a legend! 24EVER!”

– Amy, B. from Troy, VA (Richmond Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Xfinity Series, Daytona

“Although I live far away (Buenos Aires, Argentina), I’m a big fan of NASCAR, especially Jeff Gordon. I saw Jeff Gordon running live in Daytona in 2014. When I returned to Daytona Speedweeks in 2016, my dad surprised me with the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience which transformed it into the best trip I could have ever had. Jeff was great. He was very friendly and chatted with us as if we had known him a long time. Plus, he signed a car for me and I got a photo of me with Jeff as a souvenir of this awesome experience. I want to thank the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff that made it a very memorable time.”

– Mateo C. from Buenos Aires, Argentina (Daytona Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Texas

“We were very excited and a little nervous not knowing what to expect during our Jeff Gordon VIP Experience. When Jeff arrived, we were very much at ease, because he asked for us to come closer to speak with him. I was very impressed with the fact that he did not mind for the guests to be close to him. We know that sometimes the NASCAR drivers are approached by crowds.

He was very respectful of our needs. My daughter uses a power wheelchair to travel in due to a disability from birth that left her legs a little weaker. He offered for us to come up first, spent a good deal of time talking with us and took individual pictures. He was so polite and patient. My daughter was so excited. He spoke with her about liking her shirt and signed her hat very personal for her.

We appreciate everything that he did to accommodate us. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff was superb and the total experience was a WINNER. He will always be our favorite as we have followed him all of these years, but meeting him and with the kindness he showed Abigail, just makes him even more special. Jeff and the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience were both fabulous. We kindly appreciate him.”

– Micki and Abbie B. from Bossier City, LA (Texas Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Martinsville

“I was drawn to NASCAR in the early 90’s singularly because of Jeff Gordon. He personified what a champion is for me from the beginning. His work ethic, failure to lose, shared faith, and likeable personality were unflappable during the 2 decades I watched him and cheered on the #24. I couldn’t believe that through the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience I had an opportunity to meet this incredible person and hero of mine!

Admittedly, I was nervous to meet Jeff this past weekend for many reasons, but one of those was the high standards I’d built up for him and the fear that somehow I had embellished who he really is in my mind. Let me just say, he is who he seems to be on television. He is as humble and kind in person as he seems on TV! I was in awe during our time hanging out, but at the same time he exuded a feeling as if we were equals. He couldn’t have been kinder to the group of us.

I dragged my wife (not quite as enthusiastic about NASCAR as I am) along with me and she and I were blown away by the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience! She left with equal respect for Jeff Gordon and we both agreed that this was one of the highlights of our 21 years of marriage. I strongly suggest that anyone able to swing this do so! You won’t regret it…Jeff Gordon is a legend and a champion on and off the track. When else do you get to talk to, interact with, and get your picture made with such an iconic figure! Thank you to Jeff and the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff for providing us with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. 24EVER!”

– Mack & Elizabeth A. from Durham, NC (Martinsville Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Martinsville

“The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was just awesome! No way would I have imagined I would have the opportunity to meet Jeff Gordon again. What a tremendous person he is to give back to the fans the way he does. He’s the greatest NASCAR driver ever, the most respected celebrity and the greatest humanitarian ever, but you would never know that by meeting or talking to him. He is so down to earth and you can just tell when you talk and meet with him that he only wants to inspire and promote greatness! So thank you to the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff and thank you Jeff Gordon for the opportunity to see greatness at work! I’m a Jeff Gordon fan for life!”

– Daniel M. from Ripley, WV (Martinsville Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Las Vegas

“To meet your hero is a once in a lifetime opportunity that most will never have the chance to do. Yet, Jeff Gordon gives his fans just that and what an amazing experience it was. Thank you Jeff for giving us, your fans, the chance to meet and talk with you. I always hoped of meeting him, but never thought I actually would.

I’ve been a Gordon fan through his entire Winston Cup/Nextel Cup/Sprint Cup career. Having him announce that he was stepping out of the car was not what any of his fans ever wanted to hear, though we knew it would happen eventually. Luckily, we have the privilege of seeing him in the booth.

The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was all I’d hoped for and more. The VIP staff was very informative and helpful throughout the entire event. I hope I’ll have the opportunity to do it again in the future and would highly recommend it to any Jeff Gordon fan.”

– Louise G. from Vancouver, WA (Las Vegas Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Atlanta

“First of all, I want to express how everyone involved with putting the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience together did a fantastic job of making this day memorable for all of us. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff were extremely nice and professional. It was awesome to be able to go behind-the-scenes. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was even more than I expected it to be.

I have been a huge fan since I was about 6 years old. Growing up, I always dreamed of working on Jeff’s team in some fashion. I was given this Jeff Gordon VIP Experience for my 21st birthday. I never thought I would get to meet Jeff in a more personal environment. He seemed like he thoroughly enjoyed being there and talking to his fans that have supported him and his team for many years. You could tell he appreciated it.

I loved hearing his perspectives on racing, which a lot of people don’t really get to hear. When it came time to meet him one-on-one and take pictures, that is when my nerves set in. My voice was super shaky and I tried really hard not to babble on. He signed my race jacket, listened intently to whatever it was I had to say and let me take a selfie with him!

Before he left, I told him thank you one last time and he patted me on the shoulder and said, “Thanks Tristan!” I was caught off guard, because I had never mentioned my name before. Now, I may have misheard, but either way it was a really cool moment for me. Once again, thank you to everyone involved and especially to Jeff for dedicating time in his extremely busy schedule to provide fans like me a Jeff Gordon VIP Experience!”

– Tristan C. from Auburn, GA (Atlanta Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Atlanta

“I had a fabulous time at the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience. It was very well done. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff did a fantastic job and Jeff Gordon, as is normal, was a very gracious host. Jeff was quite ill that day and I felt bad that he even ventured out —- BUT, champs go the extra mile, and he did!!

I have used Jeff as a role model for our four grandsons over the years. He is an amazing person, with much humility & kindness. I’m so happy to see him as a husband and father, and enjoying his new “domestic job” – he does it well!! I will miss seeing Jeff race, but also am enjoying him via the broadcast booth. Kudos, Jeff!!”

– Betty Lou R. from Locust Grove, GA (Atlanta Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Xfinity Series, Daytona

“What a great experience the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was! Everything was so well organized from purchase to the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff to meeting Jeff. It was all so simple and easy, yet a great behind-the-scenes look at what was going on! The photos came out great as well, and my jacket that Jeff signed is a true keepsake!”

– Chris A. from Budd Lake, NJ (Daytona Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Atlanta

“I loved the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience. We had a great time. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Jeff Gordon was really great. I would definitely recommend the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience.”

– James S. from Alabaster, AL (Atlanta Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Sonoma

“My Jeff Gordon VIP experience was a dream come true…only better! I have been a JG fan for 23 years and meeting him was better than I could have dreamt it would be. The whole experience was outstanding. I enjoyed being behind-the-scenes. It was more than thrilling to actually meet and talk with Jeff. He was so kind and down to earth. A BIG THANK YOU to Jeff for making yourself available to your fans and spending the time to make each of us feel valued.

I would also like to thank Jeff’s support staff, they were so helpful and kind which added to the whole experience, as well as the amazingly great pictures documenting this momentous occasion. This was the GREATEST experience I could have ever hoped for and the only way it could be better…if I could do it at each track. Jeff Gordon, you are an awesome person, an excellent racer and such a blessing to all the charities you have helped and I feel fortunate to have had this opportunity to thank you in person for making the last 23 years so wonderful and you will be sorely missed. Congratulations on a GREAT racing career and good luck in your future endeavors. I’ll be a grateful fan forever.”

– Lynnette H. from Springville, CA (Sonoma Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Homestead

“I have been a Jeff Gordon fan from the start of my introduction to NASCAR when a friend invited me to a race at Dover shortly after Jeff began his career. I have been a Dover season ticket holder since then and 2016 will be the first time I’ve ever attended, or for that matter, watched a race without Jeff in the #24. Having the opportunity to attend the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience in Homestead for his last race was truly memorable and a thrill that I won’t ever forget. Jeff showed us that he is truly a down to earth guy and I couldn’t believe how calm he was given the significance of the weekend and the culmination of the yearlong tributes and events. He was tuned into each of us that shared the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience at Homestead. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff was awesome!”

– Michael A. from Stewartstown, PA (Homestead Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Homestead

“This year I turned 65 and decided that I would do something special for myself for this milestone birthday. When I saw the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience on JeffGordon.com, I knew that was it! Meeting Jeff Gordon was at the top of my bucket list. I have been a fan since 1992 when I became an elementary school principal in South Florida. I shared my enthusiasm with my teachers and kids for 21 years with racing themes and visits to Homestead and the local kart racing venue. There is so much science to be learned through the sport!

I retired in 2013. Jeff announced that 2015 would be his final season driving in the sport this year, so I was so excited when I found out I had secured a spot for the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience at Homestead. WOW!!! Then, when he made the Chase after Martinsville, I knew my dream was about to come true.

From the time we were met at the gate, through going behind-the-scenes and the meeting with Jeff, it was first class all the way. The time he took with each individual person and/or family was phenomenal, complete with photo opportunity, autograph and his professional, authentic style of talking about his loves…. his sport and his family. Priceless. It will be forever a memory I will always treasure. Thank you for caring so much about the fans!”

– Susan C. from Pompano Beach, FL (Homestead Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Homestead

“This was my second Jeff Gordon VIP Experience and I would do it again in a New York minute. They were both amazing events. Jeff is such a great guy. My husband and I will miss watching him race. Thank you to everyone involved for putting together a great event. I will never forget it.”

– Dena L. from Duson, LA (Homestead Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Phoenix

“My wife, Pam, was in awe of how down to earth Jeff was and thought the whole experience was really great.”

– Cory S. from Colorado Springs, CO (Phoenix Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series,Texas

“My husband and I have followed Jeff Gordon since he came in the Busch Series and he has always been our number one driver. Being major Jeff Gordon fans, we were so excited to finally be able to meet Jeff one on one through the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience at Texas in November of 2015, especially since this was Jeff’s final race there. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was well organized and with a small group we were made to feel as special as Jeff is. Jeff answered questions, took personal pictures and personally autographed the item we each brought. I always felt that Jeff was a genuine person, but being able to actually meet Jeff we were able to see that he is truly an exceptional, kind, honest, caring person worthy of all the praises that he receives. Jeff and the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience made our weekend at Texas Motor Speedway a complete experience of a lifetime that we will NEVER forget. Thank you Jeff for the memories!”

– Gordon & Linda B. from Shreveport, LA (Texas Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Chicago

“I have looked up to Jeff Gordon as a race car driver all my life. My parents surprised me the night before and told me I got the last VIP Experience ticket. I can’t tell you how much this meant because I was worried I would never get to meet him since he announced his retirement. It was better than I could have ever imagined. He’s a hero to me and I found out that the person I had always thought and hoped he was is the kind of person he really is. This was a memory that will last a lifetime.”

– Zachary T. from Park Ridge, IL (Chicagoland Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2015 NASCAR Kansas

“Ever since I can remember I dreamed of meeting my childhood hero, Jeff Gordon. I never thought I would get that opportunity, but with the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience I did. Jeff was very genuine and kind with each and every one of us. It was a special experience that I will never forget. He devoted his one-on-one attention to all of us and never seemed bored or disinterested in what we had to say. Meeting him only solidified my admiration for him and is something I will never forget!”

– Amy S. from Junction City, KS (Kansas Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2015 NASCAR Kansas

“I grew up watching Richard Petty win everything in sight, then along comes Jeff Gordon. I have followed Jeff’s amazing career for more than 20 years and wondered if there would ever be a chance to meet him in person. I got to “stand” a few feet from him at Las Vegas Speedway a few years back, when he came out and talked to a crowd of fans……but that wasn’t good enough.

A little over a year ago, my twin brother passed away unexpectedly and I became more determined than ever to fulfill a “bucket list” item for myself…life is too short. So, though it was more than I really had to spend, it was something I wanted to do. Just days before Jeff announced that 2015 would be his last season, I went to JeffGordonVIP.com. I tried to purchase tickets to the Last Vegas race in March, but it had sold out. So, I looked toward the Spring race in Kansas, since we could drive there in 3 hours. It was sold out……..immediately I jumped to the October Kansas race and got in! 🙂

So, from January, when I paid for my Jeff Gordon VIP Experience, until the October race in Kansas was a long, long wait; but very much worth it. By October, Jeff was in the Chase. I was nervous and excited all at the same time, but ended up being perfectly at ease when I walked up, introduced myself and shook hands with Jeff. I wore a NEBRASKA shirt in honor of my Twin, so he was “with me” in spirit as I achieved something that meant so much to me. Jeff allowed each person to take a selfie with him on their cell phones if they wanted….that was priceless, and something he didn’t have to do.

I highly recommend the VIP experience to everyone who has dreams. Thanks so much, Jeff.”

– Robin K. from Lincoln, Nebraska (Kansas Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Talladega

“Meeting Jeff Gordon at the Talladega VIP Experience was one of the best experiences of my life. It exceeded all of my expectations. We had time with Jeff Gordon as a group, as well as one-on-one while we were taking a photo together. We were able to ask questions and bring in an item for Jeff to autograph. I brought in an authentic (not a replica) Rainbow Warrior Simpson helmet and Jeff signed it for me with a Sharpie I brought for him to use exactly the way I asked him to sign it. It is perfect!! I also asked Jeff if he would take a selfie of us for me using my phone and he did it!! He is such a wonderful person. He is a real champion on and off the race track. I want to meet him again! Thanks so much to Jeff Gordon and the VIP Experience staff for making one of my lifelong dreams come true. #24Ever!”

– Candice M. from Selmer, TN (Talladega Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Richmond

“We loved the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience. I wish I had done it earlier. My daughter and I have been true followers since Jeff started in the Busch series. We had only gone to a race track here and there for years, until she went to Kansas for college. Then, we started a Father/Daughter weekend. I’d go visit her in August and we’d catch the race. Now, it’s been Richmond for the last 3 years. Thanks for everything.”

“I was fortunate enough to spend my seventeenth birthday meeting my favorite athlete. It was quite literally a life-long dream of mine to meet Jeff. Not seeing him on the track next year will be very strange, as I have spent my entire life watching the #24 on track. My dad and I were a little nervous about meeting Jeff, because stars are not always as nice as they appear to be, but this was not the same with Jeff. He listened to our questions and answered them with sincerity. We all even shared a few laughs. The highlight was getting my autograph and picture with him. I had a car that he raced in 1990 in the Busch series, and Jeff thought it was really cool that I had a car that was older than I was. I got to share a few memories with Jeff in a one-on-one setting, and that was a truly amazing. Meeting Jeff is the opportunity of a lifetime. He is a great person to look up to both on and off the track. He is a true champion of the sport. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Jeff and everyone involved to make this a unforgettable experience possible even through the torrential rain and everything.”

“The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was one “Xtreme Experience”! I have been a huge Jeff Gordon fan and have followed his racing career since day one. I share a passion for racing and have always been inspired by Jeff. When I heard this was going to be his final year, I immediately went to his website to sign up for the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience. My brothers and I have been going to New Hampshire Motor Speedway for years to watch the races, so I decided this would be the track and the weekend I would make it happen. Shortly after, my father sent me an email link showing that Jeff would be driving the Drive to End Hunger car at New Hampshire and that there were a limited number of spots to have your name actually placed on the hood via the “Ride with Jeff” program. For a donation to the AARP Foundation, to end hunger in America, your name would appear on the hood of the car. I figured what better way to show my appreciation and support over the years to Jeff, than to donate and have my name on his car.

The weekend was 3 days of beautiful, sunny weather. The track nestled into the color changing landscape of the New Hampshire white mountains. The smell of racing fuel & burning rubber; the thunderous sound of the engines as the cars passed closed by….I was in my glory! I purchased a pit pass along with my two brothers and immediately headed down to the 24 pit box. I brought my Jeff Gordon Axalta Brickyard 400 5X Champion replica helmet with me hoping to get an autograph. When I reached the pit box the crew was there and they were signing a few things. I patiently waited in line. When it was my turn, I handed over the helmet and asked “can I please get you to sign this?” The crew member said “no problem man”. Upon finishing and starting to hand my helmet back to me, he stopped and said ” hold on a second, hey guys….here sign this and pass it around”. I would end up getting the entire Jeff Gordon pit crew to sign my helmet. Words cannot express my gratitude. Wow.

My amazing weekend continued with the main reason for me coming to New Hampshire Motor Speedway – the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience! It could not have been any better! It began with going behind-the-scenes. We made our way to Jeff’s motor home where we would be meeting him. He came out with a smile and spoke to all of us while the practice cars roared in the background. He didn’t miss a beat and gladly answered our questions, along with telling us about his team and the Chase. I had been waiting for this moment a long time and it was a bit surreal to know it was happening. No longer was he just a person on TV whom I had looked up to all these years. It was a pleasure to shake his hand and get my photo with him. I brought a rare limited edition die cast collectible, which he signed “Jeff Gordon 24” on the windshield along with a personal message of “From one Jeff to Another” written on the roof…and I thought the crew signing my helmet couldn’t be beat!

The entire event, I will never ever forget! The memories will remain with me forever as will the inspiration long after Jeff retires. Thank you to everyone involved with the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience for being part of a weekend of a lifetime! Thank you to Jeff Gordon for the people like myself that you have influenced throughout your career. I will be rooting for you in your Drive for 5. Refuse To Lose!”

“The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was everything I could have asked for and more! I have been a Gordon fan since the early 90’s and have been lucky enough to meet him 5 times. Every time, he has been such a down to earth mentor and leader. He truly comes off showing that he cares for his fans and can have conversations with them on all levels. It was also my wife’s first time meeting Jeff. After I have been telling her for years how great it would be to meet him, she was extremely impressed with the whole Jeff Gordon VIP Experience from start to finish. I would recommend the experience to ANY NASCAR fan. It was by far one of my best days to remember!”

“I just wanted to write and say thanks for making our Jeff Gordon VIP Experience an unforgettable day! My now 18 year old son, for whom I purchased the package, is a huge Jeff fan and we planned on purchasing this experience one of these years. When Jeff announced that this would be his final season competing full time for a NASCAR championship, our plan was expedited to make it happen.

I had a great time and was in awe while my son – well his feelings and elation are probably indescribable – how do you describe meeting your favorite driver and hero in person? He said afterwards that he now has a tie for his best moment of his life – meeting Jeff in June at Dover and when he met him in New York City for a split second at the After The Lap events in November 2008.

The entire Jeff Gordon VIP Experience from start to finish was incredible – going behind-the-scenes and meeting Jeff made it a very memorable day. I think my son is still pinching himself that he met Jeff!”

– Marty V. from Cranford, NJ (Dover Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

“I’ve been watching Nascar since I was 3 years old. I would sit on the couch with my dad cheering on Jeff and the rainbow car! As a little boy, a car with that many colors was awesome! My dad and I have attended hundreds of Nascar races since 1998, but I’ve never met my idol, Jeff.

Heading into the race weekend at Bristol knowing this experience was going to happen, I was very nervous and excited. I don’t usually get too star struck, but Jeff is different.

Jeff talked to our group and was very genuine. He didn’t give answers that he would give the media, and that was very personal to each of us. I’ve met other drives and told them stories and most either don’t respond, or they will say something short like “Cool”. I told Jeff a quick story while he signed my print of his 2013 Martinsville win, and he truly seemed engaged and even responded with a quick story of his own.

Jeff cares about his fans and this sport and this experience really makes you feel like you and the group is what Jeff cares about. You can tell he enjoys talking with the fans and isn’t rushed to get somewhere. HIGHLY encourage everyone to attend this experience!”

“The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was the experience of a lifetime for me! I have been a fan of Jeff Gordon ever since I was a little kid. He was my childhood hero, and I always dreamed of what it would be like to meet him. It was a very surreal experience to finally get that opportunity! He was very nice, he treated everyone with the upmost respect, and he answered our questions in great detail. He really showed that he wanted to be there and was happy to be meeting us. It was really cool to go behind-the-scenes! This is something that I will never forget. This was truly the experience of a lifetime, and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience is an incredible opportunity for any and every Jeff Gordon fan out there.”

– Kyle Y. from North Syracuse, NY (Watkins Glen Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

“We had an absolutely amazing time in Bristol! Best race I’ve ever been to! Would have been perfect if Jeff had won though. Our Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was terrific from start (booking online) to end. Booking was easy, instructions were specific & detailed and the staff were great too. On time, nice and very easy to deal with.

Meeting Jeff was an extraordinary event in my life. By chance, in 1992, I walked past a television that had a Winston Cup race on. I soon began hearing familiar names like Earnhardt, Martin, Petty and Wallace. My father was an avid race fan and as kids, races were on every TV we had. I sat down and decided to watch the race for nostalgia sake. The commentators were talking about this new guy, Jeff Gordon, and his rainbow car. I was mesmerized, I loved the car! The driver was pretty cute too.

When I met my husband, we planned to attend some races, and started with Indianapolis, Richmond, Las Vegas and then Jeff announced that this year would be his last driving full time. I was devastated. I wanted to go to Bristol, my bucket list race, I wanted to meet my idol! So we did!

Jeff was amazing! He came out smiling and ready for us! Every ounce a gentleman, kind, interested and answered every question asked of him with from the heart answers. When it was our turn to have our photo taken with Jeff, he asked what I had brought, it was a book I had made from the Richmond night race my husband and I had gone to for our first wedding anniversary in 2011. He looked through the book and thought it was pretty cool before signing it.

I was over the moon to meet the man I had idolized for over 20 years. So happy that we were able to meet, chat, have pics and autographs taken with him before this final season ends. What a dream come true. I am so proud to be a Jeff Gordon fan, he is a standup guy, with a generous heart. I’m glad the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was available, so I could check one more thing off my bucket list, meeting “the man”!”

“Everyone has their hero and since I started following NASCAR, Jeff Gordon has been mine. Both on and off the track, he always shows class. He is very deserving of respect for all his charitable work and love of children. Meeting Jeff was not only fun, but truly an honor. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was a 50th birthday gift to me and it was the best birthday gift ever! Nothing can top the opportunity to talk one on one with your hero.”

“It has been my dream to meet Jeff Gordon since I was 10 years old and saw a young man win the inaugural Brickyard 400. A class act from the start, I immediately became a huge fan of Jeff, going to see him at different racetracks, always hoping to get to say hello to him and possibly get his autograph. Then came the news from my husband that he had purchased a VIP Experience package for me. I was surprised, nervous, and excited, all at the same time! Plus, I had to wait 3 months until the Experience.

One of my biggest fears was the old adage, “Never meet your heroes.” What if Jeff wasn’t as nice and cool as I had always imagined? The fears fell away as Jeff walked out to meet our group and started answering questions. He was genuine, engaging, and just as cool as I had always imagined!

After the initial question and answer period, Jeff took the time to talk to me as he signed a picture of his first NASCAR win that I had from 21 years ago, commenting on my 24 shirt, backpack, nails and temporary tattoos, then posed for a picture that I have framed and will treasure for the rest of my life!

I would recommend the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience to anyone who has always dreamt of meeting him. It is an experience that I will never forget. GO 24!”

“I had never been a fan of NASCAR as I was growing up. All that changed when I married my wife, a woman who put the FAN in fanatic for someone named Jeff Gordon. She told me stories of how she had been at Charlotte when Jeff was walking under the entrance tunnel and had yelled JEFF at the top of her lungs. He looked up at her, smiled and waved. In the 11 years we have been together, I have heard that story a million times. Add to that the tons of Jeff Gordon memorabilia that she had stockpiled, and it began to dawn on me that I had married the ultimate Super Fan.

I tried to do special things for her relating to JG, as I sometime call him, ’cause he’s cool, but it never seemed to be the thing I was looking for. Then, I got the email. As a member of Jeff’s fan club, my wife was invited to the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience a full 2 weeks before it was opened up to the general public. I immediately registered my wife and myself, and the rest is history.

Jeff was every bit as nice in person as he is on TV (unless you wreck him). He answered questions that I am sure he has answered a thousand times before with genuine enthusiasm for his fans, who, by the way, he thanked repeatedly during the time he spent with us.

When it came time for our autograph and picture, Jeffro, as I sometimes call him, ’cause he’s cool, listened as I told him about my sister, a cancer survivor who had been disabled from her treatment, a huge fan who couldn’t make the trip. I had brought her picture on my phone, and he took the time to pose with her picture on the phone and wished her a happy birthday. Class in every sense of the word.

I would say to anyone thinking about the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience, just do it! I will not forget the kindness Jeff showed to my wife and my sister. Even when Jeff is finished with racing, I will remain a fan.”

– Paul P. from Union KY (Kentucky Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

“Thank you so much to Jeff and the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience for making this day possible! For me, it was the perfect day from beginning to end! Jeff was so welcoming to all of us and very gracious as he spent time answering our questions and listening to our comments. Next, we all got Jeff’s autograph on one of our very own, favorite pieces of Jeff Gordon memorabilia that we were able to bring as part of the VIP Experience. THEN….We got our picture taken with Jeff….it was So Exciting and So much Fun!

This day will always be a very special memory for me….that I was able to meet Jeff Gordon, this year in Daytona….his last year of racing. I am so proud to be his fan! His passion for racing, his unmatched talent, skill and sportsmanship on the race track, will be greatly missed next season and every season. Jeff’s passion and dedication to the children and families of The Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation gives them hope and compassion. He is truly a man and driver that all of us, his fans, can be proud of on and off the track! May God Bless you Jeff, in your new journey ahead.

The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience is a day you will always remember!”

– Roslyn S. from Indian Harbour Beach, FL (Daytona Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

“What an amazing way to start a race weekend! We drove down to New Hampshire from just east of Toronto, Canada and the excitement was building all the way down! I’ve been a dedicated Jeff Gordon fan for over twenty years now and I could not quite believe that I was actually going to meet him.

When we pulled into the parking lot at New Hampshire for the morning meet and greet – I had to do my over the top happy dance in the car just to get it out of my system! Our guide for the experience was friendly and happy to share information about the activities that go on behind-the-scenes as the team prepares for the race. As we sat down waiting for Jeff to join our group, you could feel the excitement and anticipation that everyone was experiencing.

Jeff was the consummate gentleman – welcoming, open and friendly. He shared with us some of his insights about the season and graciously answered all of our questions. The experience of meeting my favorite driver, someone that I have respected for his skills, his perseverance, what he has brought to NASCAR and his values, both on and off the track, and realizing that he is exactly the type of person I expected him to be, was nothing short of amazing.

Thank you Jeff, for all you have done for the sport, for you capacity to give of yourself to your fans and to the many people you have helped though your charitable work. Thank you for years of excitement (and even a few heartbreaks) while watching you race, and thank you for the very memorable experience of meeting you. I am going to miss seeing you on the track in the years ahead, but I wish you and your beautiful family the very best of everything.”

“Back in early 2000 my daughter introduced me to watching NASCAR. Of course Kris being a great fan of Jeff Gordon, I also became a fan of Jeff, after all we share the same birthdate. Through the years of watching NASCAR, I have grown to realize that Jeff is not only a great driver, a model for all rookies to look up to, but an outstanding person off the track. He is involved in so much on and off the track and manages the time to be a great family man. I am proud to be a fan and am extremely proud to have had the opportunity to meet him. Thank you, Jeff Gordon.”

“My Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was an emotional, yet amazing and memorable one. Last year, I brought my 13 year old son, Josh, to his first NASCAR race. Josh is autistic, but loves to watch the races with me and loves Jeff and the 24 team. This year, I wanted to bring him with me to the VIP event to meet Jeff and see the #24 car up close knowing that he probably would never get that opportunity again, but he was very nervous and I thought it best not to make him uncomfortable. So, I went alone and asked Jeff to sign Josh’s first official Jeff Gordon shirt that he got at the race last year. He personalized it for Josh, and I walked away so grateful and felt that in some way Josh was there with me. Thank you Jeff for giving your fans the opportunity to share special moments with you and thank you for bringing a beautiful smile to Josh’s face. Forever grateful. Thank you for all the years of great racing. You will be missed.”

– Deirdre W. from Lynbrook, New York (New Hampshire Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)

“I met Jeff the first time when he was 10 at CQMA racing quarter midgets and my son was too. Then, the family moved to Indiana and I followed him in sprints, midgets and up through NASCAR. I also met him in Phoenix at a fan club event several years ago. He has always been so gracious with his time for his fans. I wanted to go to the VIP event last year, but it just didn’t work out. This year I was determined and found out after I signed up that Jeff was retiring. I was so happy I could go. Everyone was so nice. We met with Jeff and he talked about his future, answered questions, signed our items, and took pictures with each of us. I’ve always been impressed with the work he does for children’s cancer research and for the kids. I’ll always cherish this opportunity and the chance to say thank you to Jeff for all the years I’ve enjoyed seeing him race. Looking forward to hearing and seeing him on the TV broadcast.”
