CONCORD, N.C. -- Thursday morning, Jeff Gordon made an appearance on "The Rachael Ray Show," and the discussion quickly moved to the type of driver he is away from the track.

"My wife says I'm a slow driver," he laughed.

But he did recall one time when he nearly got a speeding ticket. Fortunately, Hendrick Motorsports teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. was there to help him out of a jam.

Check out the exchange below.

Gordon also discussed whether or not he would support his children following in his footsteps into the world of NASCAR.
