Jeff Gordon makes #28 in the BusinessWeek's Power 100 List

This week Jeff Gordon made the top 30 and ranked #28 in the BusinessWeek's Power 100. 4-Time NASCAR Cup Series champion, ranks ahead of such well-respected athletes as Tom Brady, Venus Williams, Donovan McNabb, Dwight Howard, David Beckham and Alex Rodriguez.

To determine who the 100 most powerful athletes are on and off the field, Bloomberg BusinessWeek teamed with CSE, formerly known as Career Sports & Entertainment, and Bloomberg BusinessWeek columnist Rick Horrow of Horrow Sports Ventures, to create the 2010 version of the Power 100. Unlike previous Power 100s, this year's ranking would focus only on the athletes. On-field metrics included athletes who scored the best on the field (or the rink, the greens, or the court) over a two-year period. The more popular the sport, the more weight those achievements garnered.

Why he's on the list: Jeff Gordon is one of the most popular and marketable drivers in the history of NASCAR. And, last year was another top year for him, finishing 3rd in the Sprint Cup Series standings.

Introducing the 2011 Chevy Volt

Chevrolet is proud to bring you the Chevy Volt and add to its impressive line-up. The Volt is an electric car that can create its own electricity. Plug it in, let it charge overnight, and it’s ready to run on a pure electric charge for up to 40 miles(3) — gas and emissions free. After that, Volt keeps going, even if you can’t plug it in. Volt uses a range-extending gas generator that produces enough energy to power it for hundreds of miles on a single tank of gas.
Volt is an electric vehicle with a range extender. Well, what does that mean? It means Volt runs on electricity from its battery, and then it runs on electricity it creates from gas. Let's assume you have a fully charged battery. Now, depending on the weather, the electrical features that are turned on and how you drive, you can drive up to 40 miles on the electricity stored in the battery — totally gas and emissions free. After that, its gas-powered, range-extending generator automatically kicks in to provide electrical power. So Volt can go for several hundred additional miles, until you can plug it in or fill it up again. And Volt is even a FlexFuel vehicle as well, capable of running on the biofuel E85 ethanol (5).

The launch date for the Chevy Volt is expected to be around November 2010. For more information and up-to-date information contact Jeff Gordon Chevrolet direct or call 910-791-2424. The Chevy Volt will join the already green family of the Malibu hybrid, Silverado hybrid and Tahoe hybrid.

3 Assumes fully charged battery. Actual range depends on driving habits, weather conditions, terrain and the operation of electrical features in the vehicle. Vehicle features and performance capabilities subject to change without notice.
5 E85 is a combination of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. Go to to see if there is an E85 fuel station near you.
