Jeff Gordon Wins At Pocono For His 84th Career Victory [VIDEO]

In the first of two stops there this season Jeff Gordon led 39 laps to pick up his second win of the season and his fifth career victory at Pocono.  It ties him with Bill Elliott for most career victories at Pocono and also moves Gordon into a tie with Bobby Allison and Darrel Waltrip for third place in all-time career Cup victories with 84.

Gordon caught a break when early leader and four-time winner Denny Hamlin had tire problems.  Hamlin led 76 of the 200 laps, but once Gordon got the lead, nobody could get close and he won by nearly 3 seconds.

Kurt Busch finished second and Kyle Busch third, but after the race an inspection of Kyle’s car found the front end was too low.  The car was impounded and sent to NASCAR’s research and development center.

Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick completed the top-five.

Dale Earnhardt, Junior had another respectable day finishing sixth. 

Points leader Carl Edwards saw his 40-point lead drop to just six.  Engine trouble forced him into the garage early. 

Michigan is up next.
