Based on a true story, Disney's "McFarland, USA" is about an extraordinary coach who turns a team of inexperienced and uninspired cross country runners into champions in the truest sense of the word.
In theaters Friday, "McFarland, USA" stars Kevin Costner as Jim White, a football-turned-cross country coach. In need of a fresh start and a good job, White gathers a small group of predominantly Latino McFarland High School students who reluctantly begin cross country training all over the Californian farming town.
Despite the team's natural agility, as well as a special runner who "anchors" the team, McFarland's first cross country meet leaves the runners disheartened in last place ... much to the delight of the opposing teams. more >>

They along with teammate Casey Mears all qualified for the Chase for the Championship, however only Gordon advanced as far as the Eliminator round.
2015 becomes something of a transition year for the team as this will be Gordon's final time as a full time driver and Hendrick will take advantage of the rule that allows a team to run a fifth team in selected races to help get Chase Elliott ready to take over for him in 2016.
#24 Jeff Gordon- Gordon got his final full time tour of the Sprint Cup circuit started in grand fashion as he won the pole for the Daytona 500. Once more he will be paired with crew chief Alan Gustafson and be sponsored by the Drive to End Hunger and 11 races with 3M.
