LONG POND, Pa. (AP) - Jeff Gordon is NASCAR's charitable champion.
The four-time Cup champion was honored Friday as the seventh recipient of the Heisman Humanitarian Award. The award will be formally presented at the 78th annual Heisman Memorial Trophy Dinner on Dec. 10 in New York.
Gordon was joined by Heisman Trophy winners George Rogers and Tim Brown at Friday's announcement at Pocono Raceway.
The Jeff Gordon Children's Foundation has raised more than $11 million for children's charities through the years. As part of the award, the Heisman Trophy Trust will donate $50,000 to Gordon's foundation.
Gordon's primary sponsor in the Sprint Cup Series is the AARP Foundation's Drive to End Hunger, an initiative that seeks to end hunger for nine million people over the age of 50.
