Five questions with NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon

Jeff Gordon is a rarity in NASCAR. He’s been a competitive force for 20 years in a sport that can sometimes measure longevity by perhaps not much more than a decade. In addition to his four championships Gordon has other rarities not seen in NASCAR. He’s been with the same team for those 20 years, Hendrick Motorsports and has had the same primary sponsor, DuPont.  Prior to last weekend’s race in Las Vegas, Gordon took some time to answer some questions about his longevity in NASCAR, his sponsor, his accident at Daytona earlier in the season and how becoming a father has changed his perspective.
