Jeff Gordon is being honored in a really cool way at a historic track

Jeff Gordon won seven races at Darlington Raceway during his career, and the historic racetrack is honoring Gordon in a permanent way.

Gordon attended a ceremony and cut the ribbon this week for what is being called the Jeff Gordon Finish Line Terrace.

The section of seating has three different 12-seat boxes near in the grandstand near the start-finish line.

Gordon's seven wins are third all-time at Darlington behind David Pearson (10) and Dale Earnhardt Sr. (9).

The Southern 500 is Sunday evening at Darlington Raceway, and Gordon will have a special seat in house for the race.
