Jeff Gordon Hints He’ll Retire If He Wins Fifth NASCAR Championship

Jeff Gordon Nascar Media Day 2014It sounds like a Sprint Cup is the only piece Jeff Gordon is waiting on for his collection.

Jeff Gordon addressed the possibility of retirement should he win a fifth title in 2014 at NASCAR media day at Daytona Beach on Thursday.

“I mean, if I win the championship this year, I’ve put in, you know, 20-plus great years,” Gordon said. “I do this now because I love it, because I like being competitive, and because I want another championship.”

Gordon, 42, won his first Winston Cup title in 1993 at just 23 years old. His fourth win came in 2001, when he became only the third driver in NASCAR history to win four Cup championships.

“I want to get a Sprint Cup championship,” Gordon said. “I want that before my career’s over. … If that happened, that would be all the reasons I need to say, ‘This is it. I’m done.'”
