Past Fantasy Outlooks
Gordon retired at the end of the 2015 season.
Despite Gordon’s season-long feud with Clint Bowyer, that boiled over shockingly at Phoenix, and his horrendous bad luck, the Hendrick Motorsports star still had a very good season all-in-all. Gordon managed to pick up two wins, including the emotional victory in the season finale at Homestead and finished a respectable 10th in the final driver standings. The good news is that this is about as tumultuous as it can get for a driver in a given year. The new season and clean slate should be a welcome sight for the driver of the No. 24 Chevrolet. Gordon and crew chief Alan Gustafson have combined for five wins and 36 Top-10 finishes the last two seasons, but have yet to really challenge for a championship together. That could change in 2013. Of the upper tier drivers in the sport, Gordon easily has the most upside and will likely come at a much cheaper price than the rest on fantasy racing draft day.
Gordon finished 11th in the final 2005 points standings, and won four races despite his poor season. We expect Gordon to challenge for yet another championship in 2006 as he and new crew chief Steve Letarte get their chemistry established.

Rolex 24 Win
Ricky Taylor used a gutsy move to fiercely grab a victory in the Rolex 24 at Daytona that had seemingly slipped out of reach. The Wayne Taylor Racing team was among the most dominant in the twice-round-the-clock endurance race but found itself trailing Action Express in the final hour in a battle of brand new Cadillacs. It marks the first victory for brothers Ricky and Jordan Taylor - two of the most talented sports-car racers in America - and longtime Taylor co-driver Max Angelelli. Their fourth driver? None other than retired NASCAR great Gordon, who won the first Rolex watch of his career, the Associated Press reports.
