JEFF GORDON 1995 DARLINGTON FIRST WIN RACED VERSION DUPONT 1/24 ACTIONLimited edition of 1,536 made.
In 23 full-time seasons of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series™ competition, Jeff Gordon has won at every track he’s raced, with the exception of one. Of the 24 tracks at which he’s visited Victory Lane, he’s collected multiple wins at 19 of them. The first win at each track is a euphoric experience for any race car driver; it’s like unlocking the track’s secrets and discovering what it takes to be successful there.
Now Lionel Racing celebrates one of the most important wins in Gordon’s career with the first release in its new Jeff Gordon NASCAR Classics Collection – the 1995 DuPont™ Refinishes Darlington Raceway Win Chevrolet! Never before offered in die-cast form, this is the first in a series of Race Win cars that commemorates Gordon’s early victories.
Gordon has collected seven wins along with 23 top-10 finishes at the famed “Lady in Black.” His first came on September 3, 1995, when he started the Mountain Dew Southern 500 on the inside of the third row – fifth position. Driving the No. 24 DuPont™ Refinishes Chevrolet, he didn’t lead until the 208th lap of the 367lap event. Two laps later he relinquished the lead, but found the front of the field three more times before the end of the day, including the final 35 circuits around the egg-shaped oval (a total of 54 laps led).
Gordon made it to the finish line 0.66 seconds in front of the runner-up finisher. The win extended Gordon’s lead in the standings by 41 points, a lead he would maintain for the final eight races of the season.
Gordon fans across the country can now pre-order this never-before-offered NASCAR Classics diecast that replicates what his car looked like in Victory Lane 20 years ago, with all the scrapes and dents synonymous with a long, hard-fought fight to the finish line. Each die-cast comes in special NASCAR Classics packaging and includes a full-color collector card with Gordon’s race stats.This is an Action Performance
