2014 Kansas: Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Recap

Jeff Gordon scored his first NASCAR Sprint Cup win of the season at Kansas Speedway by leading the final nine laps of the 5-Hour Energy 400 behind the wheel of his No. 24 Axalta Coatings Chevrolet SS. The win was the 89th career victory for the four-time Series champion, who was able to fend off Kevin Harvick in his No. 4 Jimmy John’s Chevy SS by 0.112 seconds. Harvick, who started from the pole position, led 119 of the 267-lap race and posted his eighth top-10 finish at Kansas.

Kasey Kahne brought his No. 5 Farmers Insurance/Thankamillionteachers.com Chevrolet SS home in third place, which was his fifth top-10 finish of the year and gave Team Chevy a 1-2-3 sweep. This was also the 10th win at Kansas Speedway for Chevrolet

Gordon became the ninth winner in the 2014 season, which essentially clinched him a spot in the year-end Chase for the Sprint Cup. He now leads the series standings with a 15-point advantage over Matt Kenseth (Toyota).

Dale Earnhardt Jr. made a strong fifth place showing in his No. 88 National Guard Chevrolet SS and Danica Patrick posted her best career finish (7th) in her No. 10 GoDaddy Chevy SS. Jimmie Johnson rallied from adversity to bring his No. 48 Lowe’s Chevrolet to the checkers in ninth place overall, to give Team Chevy six of the top-10 finishing positions.

Joey Logano (Ford) was fourth to round out the top five.

Next on the 38-race NASCAR Sprint Cup Series tour will be Charlotte Motor Speedway on Saturday, May 17th.
