CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Jan. 3, 2002)—On January 11, 2003, four-time NASCAR Winston Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon will venture into uncharted waters for a motor sports driver and host NBC’s Emmy Award-winning “Saturday Night Live.”
Gordon, driver of the No. 24 DuPont Chevrolet on the Winston Cup circuit, jumped at the chance to host “SNL.”
“What an honor to be given the chance to host the show,” Gordon said. “It should be a great experience, but I don`t know what to expect. It will probably be a lot like The Winston—90 minutes of controlled chaos.”
Saturday Night Live debuted in 1975 and is the brain child of its executive producer, Lorne Michaels.
