Jeff Gordon joined Fox Sports for the 2016 season and then signed a multi-year extension with the broadcasting company in 2019.

Gordon will leave the Fox Sports booth to take a major role at (HMS) Hendrick Motorsports as vice chairman and the second-ranking team official to majority owner Rick Hendrick.

“Jeff and I have talked about this for many years and I feel it’s a natural evolution for him and our company,” Hendrick said. “He understands our culture, our values, and the importance we place on our people and our partnerships. I couldn’t be more energized about working arm-in-arm with him and cementing the future of Hendrick Motorsports together.”

“I cannot put into words what Hendrick Motorsports means to me,” Gordon said. “It’s my home and the people here are my family. I’ve never lost my passion for the organization, for our sport, and for the sheer challenge of racing and winning at the highest level.”

“I’ve always been impressed with his business instincts. On some level, he’s been involved in every major decision we’ve made over the last two decades, and his influence has continued to grow since he stopped driving,” Hendrick, who is also CEO of Hendrick Automotive Group, said of Gordon.

“I love racing and competing, and Jeff is the only person I know who hates to lose as much as I do,” Hendrick said. “I feel great physically and have no plans to go anywhere anytime soon, which is exactly why it’s the right time.”
