Jeff Gordon to compete in Sunday’s iRacing event at Talladega

NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon will make his debut in the iRacing Pro Invitational Series on Sunday at virtual Talladega Superspeedway, he announced Wednesday night.

The four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and current FOX analyst has been in the booth for the first four races in the eNASCAR simulation league comprised of NASCAR Cup Series drivers as the real-world racing is on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He’ll trade that spot Sunday for one in an iRacing rig.

“Man, I’m gonna give it a try,” Gordon said. “Coming out of retirement boys!”
