It's almost time for the green flag to drop...for the ladies of SI Swimsuit, that is! 

As Jeff Gordon prepares to make his FOX NASCAR analyst debut at the Daytona 500 this weekend, 2016 SI Swimsuit models Hannah Ferguson and Erin Heatherton joined the former NASCAR champion for an epic party. 

The hour-long "Jeff Gordon Daytona 500 Kickoff Celebration" offers in-depth features on the newly renovated Daytona Rising and 2016 NASCAR season. The special will also showcase highlights from SI Swimsuit Launch Week events in South Beach, Miami. 

"The Daytona 500 is such a huge event, it deserves a great party to kick the season off,” Jeff said. “Thanks to FOX and Sports Illustrated, we will have the most exclusive and entertaining party the sport has ever seen. I'm honored to be hosting the event."
