SPEEDWAY, Ind. (21 Alive) - Jeff Gordon roared to the lead on a restart 17 laps from the end and pulled away for a two and a half second winning margin on the field Sunday to win the 2014 Brickyard 400.

It was Gordon's fifth Brickyard win, and he has now won more races that any driver on any circuit at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Gordon spent much of the day battling teammate Kasey Kahne for the lead before the final run to the front by Kahne late.

Kyle Busch was second, followed by Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth, and Joey Logano.
