NASCAR Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis

Gordon Captures Fifth Brickyard 400 Victory, Clinches Spot In Chase

Jeff Gordon, driver of the No. 24 Axalta Chevrolet SS for Hendrick Motorsports, wrote another chapter in the history books for himself, his team and for Chevrolet with a celebrated victory in the 2014 Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) on July 27.

The victory was his fifth in the prestigious NASCAR Sprint Cup series (NSCS) event at IMS, ninth for Hendrick Motorsports, 12th straight for Chevrolet, and 16 of 21 for the Bowtie Brand. In addition, Gordon’s second win of the season helped him clinch a spot in the Chase for NASCAR Sprint Cup with six races remaining before the 10 race playoff starts at Chicagoland Speedway on September 14.

“All weekend long, Jeff Gordon, Alan Gustafson and the team worked to find speed and balance in the No. 24 Axalta Chevrolet SS,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. Vice President Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “The team had incredible singular focus on executing their race plan. Race strategy, quick pit stops and great driving resulted in Jeff Gordon winning his fifth Brickyard 400. It was extra special to see the team kiss the bricks again, and watch Jeff celebrate with the fans as he climbed the fence at the Yard of Bricks.

“Also, congratulations to Rick Hendrick and his Hendrick Motorsports organization on winning the Brickyard 400 for the ninth time.”
