It's Rick Hendricks Racing world and we are just watching it. Hendrick drivers Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson finished first and second Sunday in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Samsung 500 at Texas Motor Speedway and also match those positions in the overall series point standings. It was Gordon's first win at Texas in 17 tries.

Kyle Busch made contact with another car early and cut a tire to move several laps down early and he wasn't able to get back up to the front. That means that there still has never been a sweep here at Texas between the Nationwide and Sprint Cup races.

Greg Biffle finished third and Tony Stewart came in fourth. After leading early, Matt Kenseth finished in fifth.

The race was mainly void of wrecks, and the first caution did not come out until lap 97 and that was for debris on the track.

The Sprint Cup takes a week off next week before racing at Phoenix on April.
