Gordon wins in close finish at Kansas

BnU3oQmCYAAxhv3Scratch Sprint Cup points leader Jeff Gordon off the list of winless drivers in 2014.

Jeff Gordon took advantage of a late-race miscue by Kevin Harvick and his Stewart-Haas Racing team to win Saturday night’s 5-hour Energy 400 at Kansas Speedway. It was the first night race hosted by the 13-year old race track. Harvick in his No. 4 Jimmy John’s Chevrolet SS led a commanding 119 Laps on Saturday night, but ran out of fuel coming to pit road for his last stop of the night, giving Gordon the break that he was looking for to unofficially etch himself into the 2014 edition of the “Chase.”

Gordon became the first three-time winner at Kansas Speedway, capturing Saturday night’s 5-Hour Energy 400 Benefitting Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

“This is so sweet,” Gordon said. “What a huge weight lifted off this team’s shoulder. We’ve been leading the points, but we needed to get to victory lane and they proved they were capable of doing that. Great, great job by them (his team). … We’ve been building up to this all season long.”

Gordon, who previously won the first two Sprint Cup races at the 1.5-mile track in 2001 and 2002 becomes the ninth different winner in this season’s first 11 races. It was his first win since at Martinsville last fall.

This was Gordon’s first series win of the season, his eighty-ninth series career win and his third series win at Kansas Speedway.

Following Gordon and Harvick (who led the most laps – 119 out of 267) to the drop of the checkered flag were Kasey Kahne finishing third, Joey Logano fourth and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. finished fifth.

Rounding out the top-ten finishing positions were Carl Edwards finishing sixth, Danica Patrick seventh (her career best) Aric Almirola eighth, Jimmie Johnson ninth and Matt Kenseth claiming tenth.

With tonight’s victory, Jeff Gordon extends his points lead over tenth-place finisher, Matt Kenseth, by 15-points as they head to Charlotte Motor Speedway next in the non-point event, the Sprint All-Star Race.

RACE NOTES:
Average Speed: 128.149 MPH
Time of Race: 3 Hrs, 07 Mins, 31 Secs.
Margin of Victory: 0.112 Seconds
Lead Changes: 25 among 10 drivers
