Jeff Gordon Makes The Chase, Twitter Explodes
Friday the 13th was anything but unlucky for Jeff Gordon and the No. 24 team. In an unprecedented move, NASCAR announced that Gordon would be added as the 13th driver in the 2013 Chase for the Sprint Cup. The news sent the Twitterverse into a frenzy. Obviously, Gordon was thrilled.
Almost immediately, the congrats started flowing in - including one from a racing legend.
Not everyone was happy, especially those in Martin Truex Jr.'s camp.
Many were having fun with the news.
