One of the best NASCAR drivers in history is getting back behind the wheel, but he won't be doing it in a stock car.
Instead, Jeff Gordon will pilot the Porsche at Indianapolis in a one-off Labor Day weekend
Gordon will compete

The one-class invitational series will feature 30 drivers in Porsche 911 GT3 Cup race cars from September 2-4, with 40-minute races on Saturday and Sunday.

Gordon's return will fuel speculation that he could race at next year's 24 Hours of Le Mans. Gordon, who is now the managing director of Hendrick Motorsports, leads the entry for Garage 56,
