Chat with Eddie Gossage

Auto Update: Off

Welcome to SportsNation! On Monday, President of Texas Motor Speedway Eddie Gossage stops by to help celebrate Jimmy V Week here at ESPN.

In the 18 years since The V Foundation for Cancer Research was founded by ESPN and Jim Valvano, the foundation has raised more than $100 million. The V Foundation started with the dream of Valvano, the former NC State basketball coach and award-winning broadcaster, as he battled cancer. For more information, or to donate to the V Foundation, call 1-800-4-JimmyV or go here. Every cent of every donation goes directly to cancer research.

In the summer of 2009, Gossage was diagnosed with cancer. Thanks to early detection, seven months later Gossage's cancer was in remission. Gossage started his career at the Speedway in 1989, before being named vice president in 1995 and president in 2004. The track hosts two NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series races annually, as well as Camping World Truck Series and Indy Racing League events.

Send your questions now and join Gossage Monday at 3:30 p.m. ET!
