PITTSBORO, Ind. – On Wednesday, Aug. 4, 1999, two-time and defending Brickyard 400 winner Jeff Gordon will celebrate his 28th birthday with a few thousand of his closest friends. The town of Pittsboro will honor Gordon with a street-naming ceremony. County Road 275 East, which runs approximately one-mile on both sides of I-74, will be appropriately renamed "Jeff Gordon Boulevard." And what better way to spend a birthday than to have those who "remember when" honor you in such a way? "It's unbelievable the way my old friends and the whole town of Pittsboro have supported me," said Gordon. "They've been there since the beginning of my professional racing career and have followed me ever since. "What an incredible feeling it is to have the whole town come together to make me a permanent part of the community. I'm honored." The ceremony will begin at 5:15 p.m. at Dr. Malcolm Scamahorn Community Park located east of downtown Pittsboro, 10 miles west of Indianapolis, on Hwy. 136.
