SONOMA, Calif. (Jan. 22, 2015) – The following is a statement from Sonoma Raceway President and General Manager Steve Page regarding this morning’s announcement that Jeff Gordon will retire from NASCAR Sprint Cup Series racing after the 2015 season.

“As promoters we are supposed to be neutral observers, but given his local roots and the tremendous success he’s had at our track, I must admit Jeff Gordon has always been looked upon as the home team around here. If he were to win our race in June on his way to his fifth Sprint Cup Series championship, it would likely be a huge cause for celebration among our local race fans. We look forward to helping Jeff celebrate the culmination of a remarkable sports career.”
