Gordon made the announcement on Thursday that he wouldn’t be retiring after this year, but won’t be driving full-time any longer.

“As a race car driver, much of what I've done throughout my life has been based on following my instincts and trying to make good decisions,” Gordon said in a release. “I thought long and hard about my future this past year and during the offseason, and I've decided 2015 will be the last time I compete for a championship.”

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Gordon has been given odds of 6/1 to claim the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship. He sits only behind Jimmie Johnson on the odds list, as Johnson is the favorite with 5/1 odds. Kevin Harvick also has 6/1 odds.

Gordon had one of his best seasons in years in 2014. He finished just outside the final four for the Chase for the Championship and ended up sixth in the final standings, but he had four wins, which was the most since 2007. Gordon is a four-time Sprint Cup champion, last winning in 2001.
