(INDIANAPOLIS) - A triumphant and emotional Jeff Gordon won his record-setting fifth Crown Royal Presents the John Wayne Walding 400 at the Brickyard 400 Sunday afternoon at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Gordon, the former Indiana resident, passed his Hendrick Motorsports teammate Kasey Kahne on a Lap 144 restart to set a record for Brickyard 400 victories. In the process, Gordon tied German Formula One legend Michael Schumacher for the most overall race victories at the historic track, which opened in 1909. It was the 90th career victory for Gordon, his second in 2014, and an enormously popular one with the Indiana fans. Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth finished second through fourth, respectively, with Joey Logano of Team Penske taking fifth. Kahne ended up sixth.
