Jeff Gordon is scheduled to run his final NASCAR event in the season-finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 22.
The track will commemorate Gordon’s “final ride” before he retires and joins the Fox broadcast crew next year by offering a special ticket package for the Ford Championship Weekend.
The highlight of the special ticket package is an exclusive diecast (1/24 scale) replica of the car Gordon will drive in his final race. The special car will have the same paint scheme as Gordon’s actual car for the 2015 Ford EcoBoost 400. Gordon’s special paint scheme will be revealed at a later date.
The ticket package, which costs $199, also includes a three-day ticket to the championship weekend (three races), reserved parking and access to the post-race celebration.
Never miss a local story.
The diecast car is only available to those who buy the special package although those who have already purchased tickets will be offered the opportunity to buy the special collectable for $50.
Gordon, 43, has 92 career victories which ranks him third all-time behind Richard Petty (200) and David Pearson (105). Gordon has the third most top-five finishes (322) and is second in most consecutive starts with 780 behind Ricky Rudd (788).
Baring injury, Gordon could retire with a record 797 consecutive starts.
