Jeff Gordon Unveils Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Paint Scheme for Bank of America 500
Jeff Gordon and Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles kicked off this weekend’s Food Lion AutoFair by revealing a special paint scheme that the driver of the No. 24 Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet will race in the Oct. 13 Bank of America 500.
The scheme features Leonardo, the unofficial leader of the heroes in a half shell, and Gordon’s young son, Leo, was also on hand to give Dad and the turtles some help with the reveal.
“To have a cool car like this, I know the kids are going to be excited about it,” said Gordon. “They love Nickelodeon, my kids, that’s all we DVR, that’s all we watch is Nickelodeon programming and I know they’re going to big fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The kids love racing and they love the paint schemes. As a parent now, these types of moments are very special.”
The four Ninja Turtles, Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael, specialize in Ninjutsu to fight the villainous Foot Clan, but Gordon has other specialties. He mentioned that if he wins the Bank of America 500 in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles paint scheme, he will breakdance in victory lane at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be presenting the Bank of America 500 pre-race show with concerts by Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice and Grammy nominated duo Big & Rich, and a daredevil stunt by world-famous tightrope walker Nik Wallenda. There will be special Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles activities, appearances and family fun throughout the race weekend.
