Jeff Gordon calls NASCAR Hall of Fame selection 'surreal'

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Jeff Gordon didn't give much thought to NASCAR while racing sprint cars in Indiana as a teenager.

He was too busy trying to get into open wheel racing.

But when Gordon's career stalled, he headed South to try his hand at stock car racing and went on to win 93 Cup races — third on the career list — and four championships while helping NASCAR move from a predominantly regional sport to the mainstream in the 1990s. Gordon was honored for his career achievements Wednesday when he was selected to the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
