CPiq11zUcAASs1lCHARLOTTE, N.C. – Jeff Gordon has the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup to focus on, but the final race of his legendary Cup career looms.

With 2015 marking Gordon’s final full-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, Homestead-Miami Speedway will truly be his grand finale.

And Tuesday evening on FOX Sports 1, Gordon revealed the special Axalta paint scheme that will adorn his No. 24 Chevrolet SS for the occasion.

“It’ll be a big event for me – pretty emotional as well,” Gordon said. “But our sponsors wanted to do something a little special as well. So we’re going to look a little different in Homestead.”

Gordon said he was impressed with the scheme that will close out his final full-time campaign.

“You know I can’t be out there on the racetrack in the Axalta car without some flames, so we’ve got to keep the flames,” he smiled. “But I love the silver. That is a sharp-looking race car.”

And it wouldn’t bother Gordon to go out on top driving the new scheme.

“There are still nine more races left to go to try and win this championship and I’m certainly extremely encouraged based on how Chicago went – even though we didn’t finish well, we ran extremely good,” he said.

But no matter what, Homestead will be a celebration for the driver of the No. 24 Chevrolet SS.

“During that race and after that race it is only going to be a celebration,” he said. “It has been an amazing career. I just never dreamed in a million years that it would have gone the way that it has and while I’m just stepping out of it there will definitely be tears – they will all be tears of joy looking ahead at the future.”
