Fans, peers react to Gordon's announcement

CONCORD, N.C. -- When the announcement was made that Jeff Gordon would step away from full-time Sprint Cup Series racing after 2015, the first thing the driver wanted to do was tell the No. 24 team in person.

So he headed to the race shop to do just that, sharing a photo of the moment on Twitter.

From there, well wishes flooded in, from teammates and coworkers, past and present.

Fans even got involved using NASCAR's hashtag, #JGFinalLap.

It was easy to see the impact Gordon has made and the lasting memories he has created in more than two decades in NASCAR.
