|Not fast like when he was young, Jeff Gordon will retire if he wins 5th title|
Might Jeff Gordon retire if he wins a 5th NASCAR Sprint Cup title?
The four-time champion, who last won the crown in 2001, said, “If I win the championship this year, I’ve put in 20-plus great years and I do this now because I love it, because I like being competitive and because I want another championship.
"I want a Sprint Cup championship. I go home, and I look in my trophy room and I see four trophies that are championship trophies, but they say Winston Cup on them. You can name me a four-time Sprint Cup (champion) for technical reasons all you want, but, to me, I’m not. I want that before my career is over.
"If that happened, that would be all the reasons I would need to say this is it. I’m done. Go out on a high note."
The 42-year-old Gordon is entering his 22nd full Cup season. He has 88 career Cup wins, ranking third on the all-time wins list.
