Jeff Gordon Wants to Race Corvettes?

Now that Jeff Gordon has announced 2015 will be his final full-time season competing in NASCAR, he’s already thinking about what the future may hold.

Though he’s made millions over his very productive stock car career and could likely spend the rest of his life relaxing at an island resort, Gordon no doubt will want to continue to dabble in racing.

In fact, at last Thursday’s NASCAR Media Day, he told reporters he would like to compete in an occasional endurance seat after he’s retired.

Helping the team of Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia win last weekend’s Rolex 24 at Daytona apparently has iced another race for Ryan Briscoe.

Autosport is reporting that Briscoe has been tapped to compete again with Corvette Racing in the Le Mans World Endurance Championship in June, though official confirmation isn’t expected until Feb. 5 when the entry list will be released.

Briscoe himself is remaining quiet about the decision, saying only that “hoped to go back” to compete in Le Mans.

Competitors in the Tudor United Sportscar Championship, such as Corvette Racing, put in long, hard hours at the racetrack and traveling around the country from spring until fall. Crews and drivers must endure hot weather, rainy weather, days away from their families, and unbelievable stress trying to make a sometimes cantankerous racecar do what they want it to do.
