By NASCAR Wire Service

Jeff Gordon, driver of the #24 Axalta Chevrolet, celebrates in Victory Lane after winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Crown Royal Presents The John Wayne Walding 400 at the Brickyard Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 27, 2014 in Indianapolis, Indiana. - Photo Credit: Rainier Ehrhardt/Getty Images INDIANAPOLIS— Jeff Gordon won the inaugural Brickyard 400 in 1994. On Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, in a No. 24 Chevrolet that clearly was the class of the field, Gordon won the 21st edition of the prestigious race. It's remarkable enough that Gordon could win a record five times at IMS. It's even more astounding that his first and most recent victories at the Brickyard are 20 years apart. And it's even more staggering that Gordon seems to have rediscovered the same sort of passion and intensity that propelled him to his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship as a 24-year-old. So don’t be too surprised if Gordon returns to Victory Lane in the 41st running of the Brickyard 400, at age 62. OK, that ... FULL STORY »
