O’Reilly Auto Parts 500


FORT WORTH, Texas (November 5, 2015) - Texas Motor Speedway's second and final installment of "Throwback Thursday" tributes to retiring NASCAR Sprint Cup Series icon Jeff Gordon features a fitting 24-second highlight video as he prepares for the final race at the venue coming in Sunday's AAA Texas 500.
The "Jeff Gordon: A 24 Second History At Texas Motor Speedway" video compresses his 19-year history with the speedway into 24 seconds and highlights his lone win in the 2009 Samsung 500. The clip also includes him taking part in the speedway's groundbreaking in 1995, performing doughnuts in the city streets of Dallas earlier this year and a few infamous moments of his skirmishes with Jeff Burton in the 2010 AAA Texas 500 and Brad Keselowski in this event last year. (Click here to view the video.) 
Last week for #TBT, Texas Motor Speedway featured 24 photos of his career at Texas Motor Speedway in two formats. One was a traditional photo gallery while the other was a unique process that animates those same still photos and brings them to life through PicDrift. 

Through camera moves and puppet movement, the same still photos suddenly have movement ranging from Gordon's car moving on track to him shaking hands with then-Texas Governor George W. Bush. To access the 24 still photos, click here
Sunday's AAA Texas 500 (1 p.m. CT, TV: NBC, Radio: KRLD-AM 1080, PRN, SiriusXM) is part of a NASCAR tripleheader that also features the Camping World Truck Series WinStar World Casino & Resort 350 on Friday evening (7:30 p.m. CT) and XFINITY Series O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge (2:30 p.m.). Tickets are available for all events by visiting www.texasmotorspeedway.com or by calling the speedway ticket office at (817) 215-8500.
