Jeff Gordon Breaks His NASCAR Winless Streak At Phoenix International Raceway

And your winner is Jeff Gordan, ladies and gentlemen. The guy NASCAR fans love to hate is back holding the checkered flag after 66 failed attempts. Gordan held the lead for most of the laps on the day as he battled with Kyle Busch right up until the later part of the race.

Busch finished second, followed by Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick, and Ryan Newman. The win is the 83rd of Gordon's career, which leads active drivers and ties him with Cale Yarborough on the all-time list.

The race was marred by wrecks early: Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne, polesitter Carl Edwards, and about 10 other drivers were collected in crashes.
