Jeff Gordan won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series auto race at Phoenix International Raceway.
Gordon passed Busch with eight laps left Sunday at Phoenix International Raceway and stretched his lead from there, ending his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series winless streak at 66 races.
“It feels so amazing. I can’t tell you how amazing this feels,” said Gordon, a four-time series champion at NASCAR’s highest level. “It’s been a long time, I know, and I’m going to savor this one so much.”
PIR has been the place to end long winless streaks lately. Ryan Newman halted a 77-race checkerless streak at PIR in the spring and Carl Edwards stopped his run at 70 races without a victory in the fall.
