Tom Cruise Introduces NASCAR Legend Jeff Gordon at Sprint Cup Awards
Tom Cruise is all smiles while making a surprise appearance on stage at the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards show on Friday night (December 4) at the Wynn hotel in Las Vegas.
The 53-year-old actor was on hand to introduce Jeff Gordon, who just retired from racing after his final season ended earlier this year.
“I’m honored to introduce a legend who has meant so much to the sport over the last two decades,” he began.
Tom later added, “[Jeff] felt as comfortable discussing a championship with George Bush as breaking down Homestead with Kyle Busch, as at-ease with discussing SNL skits with Jimmy Fallon as racing door-to-door with Jimmie Johnson. And with that, he brought joy to millions, used his immense and deserved popularity for the betterment of the world both at home and abroad.”
