BECCY has become one of the most recognizable faces in motorsports and her last name is synonymous to the sport. In recent years, Beccy has become a pioneer for women in motorsports. She is a spokes model for NASCAR, a pit-reporter, and co-founder of All-American Girl Racing.
With virtually a lifetime of motorsports experience, Beccy’s passion for racing came naturally as she was born and raised into a family of dedicated drivers. Her great-grandfather, Huntly Gordon, raced Indy Cars at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the early 1900s. Bob Gordon, Beccy’s father, entered the off-road racing scene in 1977 and is best known as “Baja Bob.” He has captured numerous Baja 1000 titles and is a 2-time series Champion. Marlene, Beccy’s mother, embraced racing and made it the Gordon Family’s lifestyle rather than a sport. She pre-ran the Baja 500 when she was 7-months pregnant with Beccy. Robyn Gordon, Beccy’s sister, is listed as the only female to ever win the Baja 1000 overall. However, it’s Beccy’s brother, Robby Gordon, who has taken their family name to the masses by competing in everything from the Indy 500, Daytona 500, Baja 1000 and Dakar Rally. He is known as the one of the most diverse drivers in all of racing. Beccy is now making her mark on the industry.
In 2006, Beccy and Robyn formed All-American Girl Racing, the first and only all female team to compete in off-road racing. After years of watching her family race, Beccy knew it was time to get behind the wheel. With a mind full of determination and will, Beccy and her team won the first race they ever competed in. AAGR launched onto the racing scene with two victories and became the first all-girl team to complete the treacherous Baja 1000. Together, as a team, AAGR has proved that anything is possible.
With a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from Chapman University, Beccy decided she needed to broadcast her passion of racing. In 2004, Beccy was hired as a pit-reporter for the Champ Car World Series. She became a feature host of Dangerous Curves on Spike TV and Champ Car Garage on SPEED. Today, Beccy continues her hosting role on a number of motorsport programs on SPEED and is a spokes model for NASCAR, appearing in several commercial spots. It’s apparent, the time she spent in the desert and garages as a child is paying off. Her easy conversation with drivers and crew members is obvious and her ability to ask the right questions is a natural talent rather than a learned skill.
Beccy’s vibrant personality travels beyond the racing industry. At 13-years-old, Beccy was the youngest member on the prestigious USA National Softball team. In 1992, she inducted softball in to the Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. At the age of 15, Beccy became a swimsuit model for Roxy/Quiksilver and represented other clients including Ralph Lauren, Speedo and Victoria’s Secret. Currently, Beccy is Vice President of the Gordon’s family business, Rob Gordon Feed Company.
Beccy has been fortunate to combine her career in front of the camera with her first-hand passion and skill of motorsport. Her proven level of dedication and natural talent has made her an instant success in the racing industry. She is well respected amongst her competitors and is a role model for women in motorsports. Beccy Gordon is clearly living life in the fast lane.
