Gordon only led 39 laps on the day, but held off pole sitter Kurt Busch to get the victory. With the win, Gordon moved up to 11th in the point standings and he is just one of four drivers this year to have multiple wins.

According to oddsmakers at online sports book Bodog, Gordon had odds of 14/1 to win Sunday’s race, meaning a $100 wager on him to win will pay out an additional $1,400.

Denny Hamlin, who has dominated Pocono in his career, led the most laps of any driver. He led 76 laps on the day but ended up finishing in 19th place. Kyle Busch, who started near the back of the pack, came in third on the day and led two laps.
