Following the success of The Definitive Earnhardt, GAC has once again partnered with NASCAR Media Group to give a rare inside look at the lives of some of NASCAR’s most recognizable drivers. The Definitive, hosted by Trace Adkins and airing Mondays at 9/8 PM CT, will look at defining moments of each driver’s career with archival footage, photos, and interviews from both NASCAR Hall of Famers and current track stars.
The first episode, featuring Jeff Gordon, will air February 20. Jeff, referred to as one part Dale Earnhardt and one part Richard Petty, took NASCAR mainstream in the 1990s and has continued his success into the 2000s. On the track, Jeff has 85 career wins and four NASCAR championships.
Tony Stewart’s episode will air February 27, exploring the 10 qualities that make him a success and includes interviews with Tony, his friends, and his competition. On March 5, The Definitive will focus on racing legend Richard Petty. With 200 wins and seven championships, Richard’s domination in the sport is undeniable. Nicknamed ‘The King,’ viewers will learn Petty’s legacy goes deeper than his accolades on the track.
“We had such great response last year with The Definitive: Earnhardt special that we were eager to team up again with NASCAR Media Group,” Suzanne Gordon, GAC VP/Programming, said. “We look forward to sharing more exciting stories of top NASCAR drivers with GAC viewers. Gordon, Petty, and Stewart have not only made their mark on the track, but also in the history books and as importantly, in the hearts of NASCAR fans everywhere.”
