Over the years, NASCAR is a sport that has definitely been changing rapidly. As it evolves, some names rise to the occasion and take opportunities when they arise, really doing their best to stay ahead of the curve and adapting quickly to be able to keep up the pace in front of others who are all looking to do the same thing.

Those who have done the best job of staying at the head of the pack consistently are able to write their name down in history and several drivers have their names all over history, becoming some of the biggest that the sport has ever seen.

Among those names, Jeff Gordon is definitely one that is among the most memorable as he has put on a display over a career that definitely should make fans of the number 24 car proud. Beginning his career in racing as just a teenager, Gordon would push and push until he would eventually bust his way onto the biggest stage of them all as a stock car racer.

In the year of 1994, 24 years ago, on Memorial Day Weekend, Gordon would eventually make his way to victory lane for the first time ever in the celebration that would certainly write its way into the timeline as being the first of many visits to the NASCAR winner’s circle.

The video down below will take you for a trip down memory lane to victory lane, showcasing the day that was teeming with nostalgia, giving you a feeling of what it might’ve been like to be on location the first time that the Rainbow Warrior would take home victory in a NASCAR race. After that moment, the rest would be history as Gordon would then record one of the sport’s most illustrious careers that will be talked about decades after his retirement.
