Four time NASCAR Cup champion and Hall of Famer Jeff Gordon retired from full time driving at the end of the 2015 racing season. He has run a handful of races in the 2016 races as a substitute driver for the injured Dale Earnhardt Jr and has run handful of races in other racing series including the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona.
Since his retirement from racing full time, Gordon has been one of the broadcasters for FOX Sports.
But this weekend in the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series at the virtual Talladega Superspeedway Gordon will make his iRacing debut.
For the past five weeks, Gordon has sat behind the microphone in the FOX Sports studios in Charlotte as a commentator on the events taking place in the virtual world.
Saying, “coming out of retirement boys,” Gordon will be a part of the biggest field so far of drivers in the Pro Invitational Series when the drivers take to their simulator rigs for some virtual racing on Sunday, April 26 at 1pm.
