INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The closest Jeff Gordon will ever come to leading the Indy 500 will be in the pace car.

Despite retiring from NASCAR at the end of this season, the four-time Sprint Cup champion said that "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing" will remain for him a dream, one he fulfilled in part by winning the Brickyard 400 and now by driving the pace car on Sunday.

"Would I have liked to at least run one Indianapolis 500, knowing what it's like? Sure," he said. "It won't be happening, but I'd have liked to know what it's like."
