Once tagged “Wonder Boy” by the late Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon was different that other NASCAR drivers in the early 1990s. But Gordon found his place, and became a champion. Thursday, he announced this would be his final season driving.

Retired NASCAR driver Mark Martin and former motocross star Ricky Carmichael are among the 2015 inductees into the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America.

Jeff Gordon, 43, has four Cup titles (1995, 1997, 1998 and 2001), 92 wins in the series and 77 poles, all for car owner Rick Hendrick. He is third all-time in victories behind only NASCAR Hall of Fame drivers Richard Petty (200) and David Pearson (105).
