We're pretty sure Jeff Gordon can build a race car. Now he's going to help build a home. He'll appear on ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" in April.
Here's the first paragraph of the press release:
On January 11, 2010, “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” traveled to Loris, South Carolina – with race car driver Jeff Gordon as the celebrity volunteer -- to meet Amanda and Derrick Suggs, a young couple who had just started their own family when they adopted Amanda’s younger siblings to prevent them from being separated in foster care. When Derrick and Amanda got married, they moved into the home Derrick inherited from his grandfather. Built by his grandfather in 1953, the home came with a long list of repairs required to make it livable: a leaking roof, outdated and exposed electrical wiring, rotting foundation, and broken and cracked asbestos siding on the outside of the house. In just seven days, “EM:HE” will build a safer, stronger home that will protect and support this incredible family. This episode will air in April on ABC.
