(Indianapolis) - It seems like just yesterday that a young driver who had graduated from Tri-West High School won the first Brickyard 400.
But this year actually marks the 20th anniversary of Jeff Gordon's historic win... and even the guy they used to call "Wonder Boy" has trouble believing it's been that long.
"With the type of season that we're having, I'm extremely excited about going to Indianapolis" Gordon said. "I think that the way that our cars are performing, the way our engines are performing, Indianapolis is a track that we certainly can win at. It's hard to believe it's been 20 years, but looking forward to celebrating those 20 years hopefully with another win".
