Gordon will drive the car in the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway (August 22, 7:30 p.m. ET, NBC Sports Network, PRN, SiriusXM). RELATED: Buy Bristol tickets "It's such an iconic paint scheme," Gordon said Tuesday morning. He went on to say that the fans' support of the brightly colored scheme made it possible for the No. 24 team to roll it out again. Running his final full-time season in NASCAR's premier series, Gordon sits 11th in the standings and would make the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup based on points, but he continues to seek his first win of the season to all but lock his place in NASCAR's playoffs as he attempts to win his fifth title. Gordon drove the rainbow Chevrolet from his very first start in 1992 through the 2000 season. Take a look at his success with the car by the numbers. 1: Rookie of the Year trophy 1: All-Star Race victory 3: Cup Series championships 17: Different tracks where Gordon earned at least one win in the rainbow scheme 33: Pole positions earned 52: Trips to Victory Lane 129: Top-five finishes 166: Top-10s recorded 10,708: Total laps led 1,000,000: Dollars earned for winning the Daytona 500 , Charlotte 600 and Southern 500 in 1997. With the scheme revealed, we’re less than two months until the #Rainbow24 returns to the track one final time. Take a 360-degree view of the special paint job. Months in the making and a hard secret to keep, we're happy to share with our fans... #Rainbow24 is back! pic.twitter.com/8SRwEMrsZm — Axalta Racing (@AxaltaRacing) June 30, 2015 First Look: Jeff Gordon 's rainbow Axalta Chevrolet. #GloryDays #NASCAR (pic: Lou Pellegrino) pic.twitter.com/7bvqjgcnWA — Jeff Gordon Online (@JGinfo) June 30, 2015 The iconic #Rainbow24 paint scheme returns! @JeffGordonWeb will drive this No. 24 @AxaltaRacing Chevy @BMSupdates . pic.twitter.com/tF2SeQ19S2 — Hendrick Motorsports (@TeamHendrick) June 30, 2015 Just revealed: #Rainbow24 returns! @JeffGordonWeb will be bringing back his classic car for a race at @BMSupdates pic.twitter.com/yj23tRZnpe — CBS This Morning (@CBSThisMorning) June 30, 2015 FULL SERIES COVERAGE • Latest news • Standings • Schedule
