Gordon now has five wins and 14 top-five finishes in 30 races at
the Charlotte track. But he had been in a slump at the track and
had not even finished a race at the Carolina track since October
Clint Bowyer finished second followed by Kyle Busch, Jeff Burton
and Carl Edwards.
Four-time Nextel Cup champion Gordon now has a 68-point lead
over Jimmie Johnson in the Chase for the championship. There are
five races remaining in the Chase. Bowyer is 78 points behind
Gordon in the Chase.
