Jeff Gordon made history Sunday as he raced to a NASCAR-record fifth victory at the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Gordon excelled in the final restart of the race as he passed Kasey Kahne with 17 laps left.
“I finally made the restart of my life when it counted most,” Gordon told ESPN. “I knew we had a great race car, we just needed to get out front.”
Kyle Busch finished second with Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth right behind.
Gordon’s record-breaking win wasn’t the only big story coming out of Indy Sunday as Carl Edwards announced two hours prior to the start of the race that he will no longer race for Roush Fenway Racing after this NASCAR season.
