Jeff Gordon entering turn 1 during the 2009 NASCAR Samsung 500 at 200 miles per hour.

This was my first ever NASCAR race and the first time that Jeff Gordon had ever won at the Texas Motor Speedway. So I was pleased to have gotten the 24 car and the word “TEXAS” in the same shot.

Texas Motor Speedway, Forth Worth Texas.
