While visiting the Los Angeles area to prepare for his first season in the FOX NASCAR booth, four-time Sprint Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon made the short trip down to San Diego to check out Saturday night's Monster Energy Supercross event.

Gordon was able to visit with some old friends, watch the exciting racing action unfold on the track and promote the upcoming 2016 FOX NASCAR coverage.
