Jeff Gordon made history with his 85th career Cup win at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Tuesday afternoon. He held off a hard-charging Jimmie Johnson in the AdvoCare 500 to move into sole possession of third place on NASCAR's all-time win list, breaking a three-way tie with Hall of Famers Bobby Allison and Darrell Waltrip.
Gordon dominated the rain-delayed event, leading a race-high 146 of 325 laps. Johnson may have been slightly faster at the end, but Gordon did what he needed to do in holding off his protege and the five-time defending champion of the sport.
Was his impressive victory enough to move Gordon into the top spot in the Power Rankings? Read on to find out.
