NASCAR's Jeff Gordon Gives Fan His Own Car After Hers Was Destroyed in a Fire
Loraine, an avid racing fan, met Gordon earlier this year at a special VIP Experience and the driver learned that she had lost her car.
This week, Gordon surprised Loraine by giving her his personal model of the vehicle.
“If you have this car, you are definitely one of my biggest fans,” he said to Loraine. “It broke my heart to know that you had one of these cars and it caught fire and burned down… We wanted to find you a car to replace that car.”
He then told her that the car she was getting was his personal car that went right from the factory to his care when it was first released.
Loraine was flabbergasted by the driver’s generosity and began crying.
“Nobody deserves this car more than you,” he told her.
Thanks to Loraine & everyone who has shown their support over the years for being such amazing fans. pic.twitter.com/qyyV178I1q— Jeff Gordon (@JeffGordonWeb) October 29, 2015
He then joked with Loraine: “Just don’t let this one burn down.”
