CONCORD, N.C. -- With pre-ordered shipments going out in October, less than a month remains until Jeff Gordon's first-ever authorized biography debuts nationally.

The book chronicles the driver's personal and professional life, including a driving career with Hendrick Motorsports that spanned over two decades.

Gordon worked with five-time New York Times bestselling author Joe Garner to pull together every detail for the book, a process that took 15 months.

Gordon -- who will fill in for Dale Earnhardt Jr. one final time this weekend at Martinsville Speedway -- recently sat down with FOX Sports to read an excerpt from his book.
