Jeff Gordon will play the role of an auto parts salesman in the CBS show “I Get That a Lot”.
The special edition of the show with the four-time Sprint Cup champion will air on Wednesday and will feature other celebrities as well which will try to trick everyday citizens in cases of “mistaken identity”.
Dressed as ordinary workers, celebrities try to confuse customers who can’t decide if they’re looking at the actual celebrity or at a look-alike. Jeff Gordon’s scene takes place in an auto parts store where the NASCAR icon plays a salesman who tries to sell Quaker State motor oil to three customers.
Besides Jeff Gordon, other celebrities appearing in the special episode include actress Jane Seymour, actor Cheech Marin, athlete Bruce Jenner, late actor Larry Hagman and Phil Keoghan from the “The Amazing Race.”
Gordon has appeared on many television shows throughout his career including as the host of Saturday Night Live in 2003, a first for a NASCAR driver. He also appeared in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (2001), Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (2010) and was invited to all of America’s talk shows.
He won two races and finished 10th in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series last year. Check out a small preview of Jeff Gordon’s appearance in the “I Get That a Lot” episode.
