Jeff Gordon Visits the Coliseum for Speedway Day L.A.

NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon was at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum for "Speedway Day L.A." 

With NASCAR Race Weekend a few weeks away, NASCAR racer Jeff Gordon declared March 5 "Speedway Day L.A."

Councilman Tom LaBonge joined Gordon at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum to promote Southern California's Auto Club 400 NASCAR Race Weekend on March 21. 

Gordon then stopped by Centinela Elementary School in Inglewood to meet with students. 

"When we are there on the weekend," Gordon said, "[we see] the diversity of ages and ethnicity. And so to me, especially when I come to California, every kind of race fan comes out and just loves cars and loves racing--and we embrace that we love it."
