DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7) You may remember him by his tattoos.

Timothy Prior is Jeff Gordon's biggest fan. He has the ink and memorabilia to prove it!

Gordon invited Prior into his final press conference before retirement.

Now, Prior will take part in a fundraiser for Gordon's Children's Hospital and pediatric cancer research.

"I have a friend of my own that's, his daughter is dealing with childhood cancer. Just to bring awareness to it and me being a fan just sets it's off even more,” Prior said.

Prior is asking the Danville community to step up and donate.
