Never forget, Gordon would have 8 championships if they never changed the point system.

I really hope he becomes an American ambassador of sorts for F1. I love it but it just isn't as popular stateside and I have no one to talk to about it

I really wonder sometimes how different things would have been for both sports if Jeff Gordon jumped ship. All of those things that he did later in his cup career would have never happened. What would have happened in F1? Would he have gone back to stock cars or stuck around?

I started watching F1 last year and I'm just completely fascinated by it. I'm American btw and 26. I watched NASCAR growing up but F1 has taken my heart in the racing entertainment. The first driver that caught my eyes were Lando Norris and Max Verstappen. I love seeing the under dogs win and seeing the process from the bottom to the top.

I really hope Jeff gets a team in F1 or becomes a part of it somehow. I am from the US so I might have bias, but during the pandemic and such, I've become more in love with F1 because of the cars and overall the entire scene. I do love NASCAR because the winners aren't always the same (like it almost always is in F1), however the F1 cars just excite me more. If anyone follows NASCAR and knows Chase Elliot, my favorite driver for the #9 NAPA car and on Jeff Gordon's team (Hendrick Motorsports), he is probably the best road course driver around. I'd LOVE if Chase gave F1 a chance in a blue and yellow NAPA F1 car at least in some of the sprint races where stuff doesn't count.

I like bringing in guest from other racing categories to broaden our horizons and maybe chip away a little at the sense of superiority in the F1 community that F1 is definitely and absolutely the best racing series and nothing will ever come close to that. This way of thinking can be so limiting to our passion for motorsports. And when you really branch out a little to drivers who haven't quite made it to actually racing in F1, may I suggest Dario Franchitti and Sam Bird? Or maybe drivers formerly in the Red Bull programme who didn't quite get their shot. And JEV would be interesting to hear from, especially how he went from being dropped by Red Bull/Toro Rosso to Formula E and become a double champion there. And I would be super interested in Sebastien Bourdais who suffered a similar fate at Toro Rosso, but had a lot of success in Indycar. There are just so many people who had there hearts broken in F1, but prospered in other racing categories that are more of level plain field between teams and competitors

Would love to see more driver cross over such as Montoya from Indycar to F1 to NASCAR and endurance racing. Kimi to NASCAR. Now recently Grosjean to Indycar. Like the old F1 drivers who would cross over to race in different series.

If you wanna be accurate, he was really the Sebastian Vettel of Nascar and Jimmy Johnson was the Lewis Hamilton He’s a legend and would’ve won more championships if it wasn’t for Jimmy Johnson being more of a legend, just like like Vettel and Hamilton

Seeing this reminded me of Jimmie Johnson's video on how Indy ignited a passion for F1 inside him... Also, in Top Gear's S18E02, Juan Montoya said that to drive, obviously nothing on earth is like a Formula 1 car. But these (NASCAR cars) are a lot more unpredictable... F1 is certainly the most prestigious racing competition in the world, but NASCAR is equally brilliant in its own way. And please do not start a debate between the two now...

People said the same thing about JPM, and I think he only managed 2 wins. It’s a huge learning curve, just like going from NASCAR to F1 would be, and he’s not getting any younger. Kind of the same boat Gordon was in when he had F1 opportunities. Young enough to be competitive, but bordering on too old to learn an entirely different skill set. Definitely think it would be cool to see Lewis give something like the Daytona 500 a shot after his F1 career winds down though.

@nicholas williamson - I think "solely" is a reach. Gene has been involved in motorsports in The States for decades, first as a sponsor and then as a NASCAR team owner for over 20 years. There are many ways to promote a brand, Gene has always picked racing because he has a love for it.
