Jeff Gordon wins for a fifth time at the Brickyard!
The race at Indianapolis was filled with different race strategies, but the 24 team would be the group to come out on top.
Jeff Gordon was able to get the lead early, but eventually lost it when a competition caution came out. Throughout the rest of the race there were several different leaders, but Kasey Kahne continued to stand out as the race reached the halfway mark.
Denny Hamlin also had a fast car at Indy, but Hamlin lost his chance to win when the 11 team messed up on pit road and he had to go back around to get enough gas into his car.
Besides for the competition caution, there were only three other cautions during the Brickyard 400. Danica Patrick brought out one as something broke in her car as she was coming off of pit road and couldn't drive the car.
Trevor Bayne brought out the third caution when he cut a tire and hit the wall in Turn 3. Drivers went into pit road, but it didn't change most of the strategies for the race.
It was the last caution around Lap 140 that was brought out when Ryan Truex ran out of power that reset the strategies teams were trying to establish throughout the race.
Kasey Kahne had emerged as one of the strongest cars but on the last restart of the race it would be Kahne's teammate, Jeff Gordon who would take at Indy.
Jeff Gordon held the lead and has now won more times at Indianapolis than any other Sprint Cup driver. Gordon continues to have one of his best years in the Sprint Cup Series and adds to the dominance of Hendrick Motorsports this year.
