Well first off I have to admit I was unable watched the Sprint Cup awards banquet as I was unable to receive the channel. However I was able to view Jeff Gordon’s emotional speech.
Throughout his speech his showed the upmost class thanking everyone from his team to his fellow competitors to the series itself. And would we have thought otherwise for as long as he has graced us with his raw talent and professionalism in our sport he was the class act we have grown accustomed to in his final banquet speech. As he shed tears during his speech so did I, because I along with so many know there might not ever be another like him to come along.
