Saturday TV Guide: Jeff Gordon Hosts FOX Daytona 500 Special

Saturday TV Guide: Jeff Gordon Makes His NASCAR Broadcast Debut
Saturday's TV schedule is dominated by sports and politics, including the first event of the 2016 champion Jeff Gordon has officially joined FOX's broadcast team, so fans can expect to hear from Gordon (pictured above center, with partners Mike Joy and Darrell Waltrip) when the network airs the Sprint Unlimited at Daytona starting at 8 p.m. ET.

Brad Paisley Was Jeff Gordon's Surprise Gift At Christmas Party
As if having Tom Cruise crash his farewell speech wasn't enough, Jeff Gordon got another surprise this weekend when country music superstar Brad Paisley arrived to drop in on his company Christmas party.

Gordon's race team, Hendrick Motorsports, was throwing their annual holiday bash on Friday night and given that it's also the four-time champion's last year as a driver there was another send-off for Gordon as well. The Hendrick crew put a giant bow on one of his No. 24 Axalta Chevrolets and drove it in to present it to Gordon.

But what Gordon didn't know was that Paisley was the one in t...

Jeff Gordon Makes Sports History As NASCAR's New 'Iron Man'
Jeff Gordon has received a lot of honors and tributes as he completes his final 's new 'Iron Man' and one of the few athletes who have been able to display remarkable consistency in their chosen sport.
