“I’ve been in quarantine, but the good news is it was smooth, and I had minimal symptoms and good to go for Martinsville this weekend,” Gordon told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio’s “On Track” show.
The NASCAR Cup Series was off last weekend for Easter so Gordon did not have to miss a broadcast.
Gordon said his wife and two children did not test positive and no one else on his Fox Sports broadcast team have reported getting sick.

“I’m a big proponent of masks and vaccination and protecting ourselves. It’s unfortunate that this happened but fortunate at the same time that I’ve been able to get through it as smoothly as I can and be ready to go this weekend,” Gordon said.
