Robert Baker/Associated Press
Jeff Gordon raced his way into the history books last Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Jeff Gordon sailed into Victory Lane and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series record book with his fifth career win at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last Sunday.

Not only did it break the tie Gordon had with Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson for most NASCAR victories ever at the famed 2.5-mile track, but it also moved Gordon into a tie with Formula One's now-retired Michael Schumacher for most wins at the track in any racing series. It was enough to make Gordon admit he was emotional in the closing laps.

"It's such a big race, such an important victory, a crucial moment in the season and the championship. The emotions take over," Gordon told Fox Sports.

But what did it do for Gordon in the B/R driver rankings? Is his second win of 2014, coupled with remarkable season-long consistency, enough to put him over the top of guys such as Johnson and Brad Keselowski, who are tied with a series-high three wins apiece on the season?

Is Gordon's chemistry with his No. 24 Chevrolet team and crew chief Alan Gustafson at an all-time high? And which other top drivers are gaining in momentum and overall team strength as the 2014 Chase for the Sprint Cup moves closer? Read on to find out.
