NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon Sells $30 Million Central Park Apartment, Moves to North Carolina (Gallery)
Although many critics say NASCAR isn’t a “real sport” because racecar driving is just a bunch of people speeding and crashing, Jeff Gordon doesn’t mind. The 4-time NASCAR Sprint Series winner and 3-time Daytona 500 champion has earned more than $100 million by driving in circles.
Recently, he sold his New York City apartment at 15 Central Park West. The final retail price is not open to the public, but Gordon originally listed it for $30 million. While everyone laughs at his sport, he laughs his way to the bank.
The 3,454-square-foot luxury pad overlooks Central Park. Gordon decked out the home with elegant cherry wood floors, an oak bar, a Crestron home control system and a Boffi soaking tub in the master bathroom. Anyone would be lucky to afford the three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom residence.
The NASCAR driver, his wife, Ingrid Vandebosch, and their two children Ella Sofia and Leo Benjamin currently live in Charlotte, North Carolina.
