(BROOKLYN, Mich.) — Not only did Jeff Gordon win his third NASCAR Sprint Cup race of the year, he won at Michigan International Speedway for the first time since 2001, as he won the Pure Michigan 400 on Sunday.
It was Gordon’s 91st NASCAR Sprint Cup win. This is his first three-win season since 2011.
Gordon remains at the top of the points standings over Dale Earnhardt Jr. Gordon holds a three-point lead in the standings.
“It wasn’t easy, it’s never easy to win at any of these tracks, especially when aerodynamics and track position mean so much,” Gordon said after the race. “I thought we learned a lot the last time we were here on track position so Allen called a perfect race.”
Kevin Harvick finished second in the race, followed by Joey Logano, Paul Menard, and Dale Earnhardt Jr.
With three races left in the regular season, barring any attempt to not qualify the races, the 12 drivers have been determined in the Chase for the Sprint Cup.
