He has been racing since he was 5 years old. He was NASCAR's Rookie of the Year in 1993. He has won the Winston Cup points championship three times, and he's leading the standings again in 2001.

Brooke Sealey & Jeff Gordon
Jeff Gordon might have broken an unwritten rule when he ran off with Miss Winston Brooke Sealy.
So, it's safe to say that Jeff Gordon runs in pretty fast company. Page 2 got him to slow down just a little bit to take answer our 10 Burning Questions.

1. You co-hosted "Live!" with Regis in January, and you've been on Larry King twice. Can we assume you're pretty much locked into a talk show gig after you're finished racing?
Gordon: I don't think so.

2. Why not?
Gordon: I'm a better at being a guest than a host.

Jeff Gordon
Gordon says he's got products from DuPont, Pepsi and Frito Lay all over the house.
3. Do you get free stuff from your sponsors? Is your house filled with Pepsi and Fritos?
Gordon: Yep. Pepsi, Fritos and DuPont products. There's nothing like being in victory lane with Pepsi and Fritos.

4. Nice job on mentioning your sponsors. But do you really eat Fritos all the time?
Gordon: Not on the weekends, when I need to watch what I eat.

5. Do you hate Tony Stewart?
Gordon: Nah, Tony is a good guy.

6. C'mon ...
Gordon: He's a fierce competitor, and sometimes we're both going for the same spot, and there's not enough room for the both of us.

7. After you won a race at Daytona in 1993, you met Brooke Sealy -- Miss Winston -- in victory lane and eventually married her. Wasn't there's an unwritten rule that drivers were not supposed to have a relationship with Miss Winston?
Gordon: I guess not.

8. Was anyone mad at you for that?
Gordon: No.

9. You sure?
Gordon: Well, maybe some other guys had their eye on her. In this business, you travel so much it's hard to meet the right person. But when I met her, I knew she was the right person for me.

10: You turned 30 last week. Is it all downhill from here?
Gordon: Hopefully, I can still win races. I hope I'm just coming into my prime.
