Gordon to drive 'Peanuts' car

Well, all the rumors you've heard are true. Jeff Gordon will be driving in a car with a special 'Peanuts' paint scheme. It is to commemorate the work and life of the late cartoonist, Charles Schulz, who drew 'Peanuts' for so many years.

The car was unveiled by Gordon, Peanuts character "Snoopy" and Chris Schulz, the cartoonist's son, Friday morning at Sears Point Raceway on the eve of the opening practice for Sunday's Save Mart/Kragen 350.

The car will be entered at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the August 5 Brickyard 400.

The paint scheme features America's favorite beagle in the form of Joe Cool and the Red Baron atop DuPont ChromaPremier "Cool Blue" paint colors. Snoopy's faithful sidekick Woodstock will also be on board to help pilot the No. 24 Monte Carlo.

"We hope that the Red Baron takes over for us at Indy," said Gordon who wishes to be the first three-time winner of the prestigious event.
