Jeff Gordon Wins Subway Fresh Fit 500 In Phoenix

The Rainbow Warrior is in Victory Lane again: Jeff Gordon's a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series winner for the first time since April 2009, winning the Subway Fresh Fit 500 in Phoenix.

Gordon led the most laps on the day, but had to come from behind to get the win. Kyle Busch spent a fair bit of time in front at the end, but when the 24 nudged his 18 car late, Gordon took the lead and would not relinquish it. Busch finished second, followed by Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick, and Ryan Newman.

The win is the 83rd of Gordon's career, which leads active drivers and ties him with Cale Yarborough on the all-time list.

The race was marred by wrecks early: Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne, polesitter Carl Edwards, and about 10 other drivers were collected in crashes.

We'll have the full results from the Subway Fresh Fit 500 from Phoenix International Raceway in this StoiryStream when they become available.
