Watching No. 24 on track gives Gordon chills

RELATED: Full Speedweeks schedule at Daytona

It took five short minutes for Jeff Gordon to feel some pangs as practice for the Daytona 500 revved up Saturday morning at Daytona International Speedway.

Jamie Little was in the No. 24 team's garage area as a Rihanna song was blaring over the new garage sound system, catching the attention of Gordon, Mike Joy and Darrell Waltrip in the FOX Sports 1 booth. 

"I don't get all the cool new things," Gordon commented, adding that when he saw the blue NAPA No. 24 roll onto the speedway, "It sent a little chill up my spine."

"This is when it hits me," Gordon said. "There he is."

Still getting used to his new surroundings, Gordon found time to check in with the NASCAR Nation on social media to share his first tweet from the TV booth.
