Business At Hand
August 1 - - Jeff Gordon starts 5th in Sunday's race at Pocono Raceway. It is Gordon's 7th top-10 start in the last 9
races. He also started 5th at Pocono in June. After accepting accolades for the Brickyard 400 victory during the week, Gordon
arrived at Pocono on Thursday evening and immediately turned the focus to the triangular 2.5-mile track. "We get here and it's back to business," Gordon said.
"We're certainly going back to business with a different mindset of what we're capable of doing as a team and what cars we're bringing to the race track and things like that.
This is Pocono. It's similar to Indianapolis, but it's unique and different enough as well that we've had to work pretty hard to try to get some more speed out of the car.

Action Day 2014
July 22 - - In late June, I attened Childhood Cancer Action Days in Washington, D.C. hosted by the Alliance for Childhood
Cancer. The two-day event consisted
of advocacy training followed by visits with Congressional representatives and Senators. Jackson Panzarello's inspiration brought me to Capitol Hill in June. What I
found there were hundreds of impassionated advocates and teammates fighting to end childhood cancer. I knew in my heart that these were indeed the committed people who will change the world and improve the outcomes for all children diagnosed with cancer.
Thank you, Fight On.

Fight On Against Pediatric Cancer
As you may know, I didn't start a website about Jeff Gordon with the intention of raising money to fight pediatric cancer. Two years ago, Jackson Panzarello
forever altered the course of my life. Jackson's battle against cancer sparked my efforts to give more children a fighting chance against the disease.
I have many teammates who open their hearts and wallets every time I have a pediatric cancer fundraising event. Whether you've donated $5, $500, or $5,000,
your continued support means to the world to me. My fundraising efforts are directly tied to the power of teamwork. It is truly, as the inscription at Hendrick Motorsports reads,
"the fuel that allows common people to produce uncommon results." Please consider a donation and join our team in the fight against pediatric cancer.

Oct 24-28: A long weekend in Southern California in honor of the inspiration
who put me on this incredible path to make a difference in the fight against childhood cancer. It was humbling to read the piece on USC's website about my pediatric cancer
fundraising efforts in honor of Jackson Panzarello to support The Jeff Gordon Children's Foundation, Kick-It, and CureSearch.
