LONG POND, Pa. (AP) - Jeff Gordon led most of the final 40 laps and won for the second time this season, taking the checkered flag at Pocono Raceway for a fifth time Sunday.
Gordon won in February at Phoenix International Raceway and has multiple victories in a season for the first time since 2007. Gordon tied Bill Elliott with five wins on the 2 1/2-mile triangle track.
Gordon's victory at Phoenix ended his drought at 66 races without a win. This 11-race winless stretch was just a blip compared to that.
Pole sitter Kurt Busch was second and Kyle Busch third. Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick rounded out the top five. Dale Earnhardt Jr. continued his rebirth with a sixth-place finish. It capped a great day for Hendrick Motorsports - first, fourth and sixth.
