Here’s what Jeff Gordon VIP guests have had to say about their experience.
“Meeting Jeff was #1 on my bucket list! The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was the experience of a life time! It was totally awesome!”
– Sue N. from Lincoln Park, MI (Michigan Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“Everything was great at our Jeff Gordon VIP Experience! If anyone is debating on attending a Jeff Gordon VIP Experience, just go. I had a painting that my artist partner painted that we submitted to the licensing department at JG Motorsports in 1997. In 1998, Ricky Craven and Bobby LaBonte signed it. While Jeff was answering our group’s questions, he asked whose painting this was and he asked me where I’d like him to sign it. He took so much time signing it. It was PERFECT, not some sloppy thing you can’t read.
I had one other request I asked of him. It was if he would make a short video to the “B” shift at fire station 78 in Houston, TX. He did a GREAT shout-out to them. They saved my brother’s life! I’m so thankful Jeff did this! I’ll be giving them the video in person. I think it will be the biggest surprise they ever got from a family they helped! THANKS AGAIN!”
– Kurt S. from Rockford, IL (Charlotte All-Star Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“My Jeff Gordon VIP Experience at the May 2017 Talladega Superspeedway was my 4th Jeff Gordon VIP Experience. It was just as exciting as the first!
Jeff Gordon really appreciates his fans and their support and it shows during the experience. Jeff is a class act & makes everyone at the VIP Experience feel special. He engages with the group, takes questions and gives the fans insight into what is going on in his life.
Jeff then autographs an item that each fan brings in & Jeff’s professional photographer takes a photo as an additional keepsake from the Experience. This year, I brought in a race used #24 door from Jeff’s 2005 season. Jeff autographed his trademark bright yellow #24 exactly as I requested with the blue sharpie I brought in for him to use. The door is now perfection!
The best thing about Jeff Gordon is his sincerity. He truly enjoys meeting his fans & he loves NASCAR! Thanks to Jeff Gordon & the VIP Experience staff for making my dreams come true again.”
– Candice M. from Selmer, TN (Talladega Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“I had a blast at the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience in Bristol. Jeff was beyond nice, and it was the coolest thing in the world getting to meet him again. This time, I made something to give to Jeff. It was a collage of all the schemes he drove over the course of his career made into the shape of his number 24. He seemed to really, honestly appreciate it…and he signed my copy of the picture. It couldn’t have been more perfect, and I’m so excited that I was able to be part of this exclusive group. I highly recommend the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience.”
– Taylor G. from Maryville, TN (Bristol Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“I would like to thank Jeff for making time for his fans by putting together this VIP experience. To be able to spend time with a NASCAR legend, and to hear his take on the track (Auto Club Speedway), and how he thought the race would run was insightful. It was also nice to have the Q & A session with him. I would also like to thank him for taking extra time with the one youngster that was with our group. You could tell he went out of his way to make some extra time with him, and you could see the kid’s face light up that much more. Awesome experience, and will sign up again next year.”
– Brent T. from Los Angeles, CA (Fontana Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“I have been a Jeff Gordon fan since the early 90’s. I was fortunate enough to be part of the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience in Phoenix this year. Jeff was a most gracious host. The event was well organized and Jeff spent quite a bit of time with our group. We all were thrilled to be with him, to ask questions and just talk with him. If you want to meet Jeff, I would highly recommend this experience for any fan. It really was the chance of a lifetime, and I will absolutely do it again in Phoenix next year. Thanks Jeff for the time you spent with us.”
– Scott S. from Phoenix, AZ (Phoenix Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“I thoroughly enjoyed the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience and appreciate the coordination that goes into making this happen, as well as Jeff giving back to his fans. I don’t know of any other sport where the athletes make themselves this accessible. It was a bit of a splurge, but it is that once in a lifetime opportunity that you will always remember!
The communication regarding the event was great! Maps, phone numbers and email addresses all to ensure we made it to the event. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff was great. We met Jeff by his motorhome and what really stood out was his understanding in being a fan. While we were all snapping photos for the first 5 minutes, because I’m sure most of us were pinching ourselves that we were really there – he talked about the track, what type of racing he anticipated seeing – which was perfect! He was totally relaxed, which after a few minutes made all of us relax as well. You really felt like you were not talking to a celebrity, but having a conversation with a new friend.
Then, Jeff answered some of our questions. His answers were not simple yes/no responses. He took the time to thoughtfully answer each question, especially challenging ones. He made sure pictures were taken with all family members, autographed our item, and was very gracious. It was like he was one of us. I loved every minute of going behind-the-scenes! I highly recommend the chance to meet Jeff Gordon who is a champion, athlete, spokesperson for the sport and a true gentleman. What a once in a lifetime memory!”
– Marianne L. from Los Angeles, CA (Fontana Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“When I was a strapping young lad, I used to go help my dad work on Sundays. We would setup auditoriums for events. The reward I got for helping was the ability to watch cable TV in the set up room after we were done. There was this thing on TV called ESPN. I was in awe at how many sports were available on this channel. As I was watching, suddenly this thing came on TV, just a bunch of fast cars going by.
As a kid, who doesn’t like fast cars?! So I fell in love with that thing, NASCAR! A year later this driver from CALIFORNIA no less had just started his rookie year. I paid attention a bit but still couldn’t watch regularly. The following year, I was able to get the timing right that I would get done with setup and be able to watch NASCAR.
The California Kid, Jeff Gordon, was on the rise! I watched week in and week out! The most memorable race I watched was the inaugural Brickyard 400 in 1994.
This weekend a kid’s dream came true! I was able to meet Jeff Gordon, spend some time with him, get a photo together and an autograph!
I’d like to thank my dad (Tran) for letting me watch ESPN. I’d like to thank my loving wife, Linda, for putting up with my odd hobbies, and for taking off her Jimmie Johnson gear off for a couple of hours, so that I can spend time with Jeff Gordon. Jeff Gordon thank you for taking the time to meet us. I really enjoyed the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience.”
– Jerry N. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Fontana Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“I am a diehard Jeff Gordon fan and have been one for many years. I never thought I would get the chance to meet him. Phoenix was our second Jeff Gordon VIP Experience. We were just as excited and this one was even better than the first. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable, and Jeff makes everyone feel welcome. It’s amazing to be able to get a glimpse into his life and to be able to get something special signed to make it even more special. He takes the time to make sure the signature is perfect and even asks about the item as he’s signing it. To get professional photos of this experience is the icing on the cake. Cherished memories forever! Thanks to Jeff for giving his fans this once (or twice) opportunity of a lifetime. Glad I picked the right guy to be my idol.”
– Dean J. from Frederick, CO (Phoenix Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“My Jeff Gordon VIP Experience in Las Vegas was a blast. It was even more than I expected and everything was so professionally done. It was so cool to have Jeff talk one-on-one, as well as sign my 1995 Cup championship car. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience is a must-do if you have the chance. Thanks Jeff! You’re awesome.”
– Derrick N. from Kahului, HI (Las Vegas Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was one of the most incredible moments of my NASCAR life. Jeff was so relaxed as we all sat on his furniture and he took the time to answer our questions. He even remembered a tweet that I had sent him the week before. Jeff is a credit to NASCAR and a shining example of what the young guns should be looking up to.”
– Chris N. from Liverpool, Great Britain (Daytona Clash Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“Traveling from my home in U.K., I had a great time and great experience meeting my all-time NASCAR hero, Jeff Gordon, who I have followed since first watching NASCAR in 1993. The photos I got with Jeff will be memories for a lifetime, as well as my DuPont Team Jacket that Jeff signed will be, which now has pride of place hanging in my memorabilia room at home.”
– Dave H. from Leicester, UK (Homestead Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“I have been a fan of Jeff Gordon since he first came into NASCAR. I was so upset that he was retiring, then I was really upset when the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience for Chicagoland in 2015 sold out before I could purchase a ticket. I thought I would never have another chance to meet him. Then, to my surprise he was coming back to Chicagoland in 2016. My husband purchased a Jeff Gordon VIP Experience ticket for me as my birthday present. This was the best present ever! Jeff was so kind to each and every one of us. He took questions from us as a group and then took pictures with us individually and as a group and autographed the item we brought with us. He was so down to earth and he is really funny. If he continues to do this, I would highly recommend that any Jeff Gordon fan take advantage of this opportunity.”
– Michelle J. from South Holland, IL (Chicagoland Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“My 2016 Miami Homestead VIP Experience with Jeff Gordon was actually my 3rd Jeff Gordon VIP Experience, having previously met Jeff at the Oct. 2015 Talladega, AL and Sept. 2016 Darlington, SC VIP Experiences. I have to say that meeting Jeff Gordon for the 3rd time was definitely the charm! Jeff spoke to the group and also answered several questions from the group. He then autographed an item of each individual’s choice, which was photographed by Jeff’s professional photographer as an additional keepsake. I brought in one of Jeff’s rarest die casts, which Jeff signed with his name & his trademark #24 just as I requested. Jeff Gordon loves his fans and is a true champion on and off the racetrack. He made so many people’s dreams come true at Miami Homestead, including mine. I want to again thank Jeff Gordon and the entire Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff for making this amazing experience possible. I can’t wait for 2017! #24Ever!”
– Candice M. from Selmer, TN (Homestead Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“I had a great time meeting Jeff through the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience. He was very pleasant and spent time with every person. I have been a fan of Jeff for many years and plan on going to more Jeff Gordon VIP Experience events that he has. Thank you for letting us meet such a king of NASCAR.”
– Raymond R. from Salem, NH (New Hampshire Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“My Jeff Gordon VIP Experience at Darlington Raceway 2016 was actually my second Jeff Gordon VIP Experience as I first met him at the 2015 October Talladega event. My second Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was just as wonderful and memorable as the first. Jeff Gordon is a true champion on and off the racetrack. He is so appreciative of his fans and gives fans the opportunity to ask him a question in the group setting, as well as have an item of their choice autographed, which is photographed by a professional photographer as an additional keepsake.
I brought in the actual race used door with contingency from Jeff’s last #24 Pepsi car he ever raced. It was from the November 2015 Phoenix race. Jeff signed it perfectly just as I requested with the blue sharpie I brought in for him to use. This #24 Pepsi door is absolutely beautiful and now complete with Jeff Gordon’s signature on his trademark yellow Jeff Gordon #24. I am already signed up to meet Jeff Gordon for the third time at the 2016 Homestead Jeff Gordon VIP Experience this November and I can’t wait! If you are a Jeff Gordon fan, then the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience is definitely for you! Lifelong memories are made with the one and only Jeff Gordon and I can’t thank Jeff and the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff enough for making this possible. #24Ever Jeff Gordon!”
– Candice M. from Selmer, Tennessee (Darlington Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“In my career as a Senior Non-Commissioned officer in the USAF, I had my share of scheduling conflicts due to personnel or weather related inputs that attempted to derail the mission, but I always had a backup plan to accomplish the assigned task. I witnessed what could have been a disaster for the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience at Darlington. Tropical Storm Hermine’s raging wind and rain had cancelled all Friday track activity thus forcing an alteration to the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience originally planned schedule. Had it not been for the swift action taken by the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff, those participating in the event along with me would have surely been a tiny bit upset. Bottom line……the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience made it happen! I’d like to express my thanks to the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff for helping fulfill my dream of a lifetime meeting Jeff as “mission accomplished”. Jeff was such a cool person and was very accommodating to all of us. I was excited that when I showed him the picture of him testing at South Georgia Motorsports park in 2006, that he had a memory of that day and was excited to affix his signature. My compliments to such a great organization that enables NASCAR FANS to make their dreams become reality. I highly recommend the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience.”
– John Z. from Valdosta, Georgia (Darlington Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“I have been a Jeff Gordon fan for over twenty years, and during that span I have been very fortunate to have had a few passing encounters with him. Those encounters always left me hoping to have more than a few seconds of his time as he hustled by on his way to some place he had to be. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience finally provided that for me. Jeff came, met with us and spent time with each of us individually. He hung out, answered our questions, and gave us his full attention… it was FANtastic. Jeff is just one person, and there are thousands that would like to meet him. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience allows you to be one of a very exclusive group that actually gets that opportunity. Thanks for providing this for your fans Jeff! 24ever!
– P. Mark D. from Elkview, WV (Bristol Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“Thank you very much! The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was a great day and I really appreciate all the work involved in setting it all up.”
– Virginia M. from Ocean City, NJ (Pocono Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“I truly enjoyed my Jeff Gordon VIP Experience. I am so grateful that Jeff took the time on what was a very busy weekend for him. His ability to step into Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s car and deliver a respectable P13 finish is a true testament to his abilities. While I believe he was caught a bit off guard by my #88 Axalta car, as I told him it is a piece of his history I wanted to capture; the first time in his NASCAR career not in the #24. I have had great luck getting Jeff’s autograph on my memorabilia in the past, but the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience not only allowed time for an autograph it afforded me the opportunity to better understand from his perspective the true nuances of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s four different turns and what he can do to get the best out of his car and himself. I have watched Jeff since he first came to Indiana and raced at IRP and to see him one more time at the Brickyard was a very welcome surprise for a long time fan. Thank you! #24EVER!”
– Jania G. from Indianapolis, IN (Indianapolis Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“My family and I had an awesome time at the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience in Indy! My Dad introduced my brother and I to NASCAR racing and in particular, rooting for Jeff Gordon when we were little. It was our tradition for the three of us to watch EVERY race and go to races when we were able. My Dad and I were VERY lucky to have met Jeff for the first time at Michigan last year through the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience where Jeff impressed us so much! But, we wanted the three of us to experience this together. It’s always been a dream of ours to be together and meet him and that dream came true at Indianapolis this year. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience made this possible, and we were all very pleased with this experience. Jeff is such a class act and to take time out of his hectic schedule to meet with his fans is truly generous. He is so personable, humble, and caring. Jeff personally made sure all of us fans received our autograph and picture too! We loved every minute of this experience and it is worth every single penny. To shake the hand of such a legend is truly amazing. Jeff left us with not only an autographed item, but with memories that will last a lifetime. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff did a great job coordinating everything for us, and I would highly recommend the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience to any Jeff Gordon fan.”
– Stephanie S. and Steve Y. from Rensselaer, IN (Indianapolis Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“We had a great time at the Jeff Gordon VIP Experience in Indianapolis. When I came across the information regarding this opportunity, I knew it was something we had to do. Words could not explain how important last weekend was to my brother and I. We were thankful Jeff is so gracious to his fans.”
– Jeremy P. from Zanesville, IN (Indianapolis Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“THANK YOU SO MUCH! The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience was the BEST part of the entire weekend. The Jeff Gordon VIP Experience staff was so knowledgeable and friendly. They provided information which was wonderful to have, kept us updated on what was going to happen, and then made it happen. I’ll definitely want to do this again!”
– Dianne P. from Cameron, MO (Indianapolis Jeff Gordon VIP Experience)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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!”

“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)
“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.”

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