Subway Fresh Fit 500 - Race results

Jeff Gordon stopped Kyle Busch from claiming a clean sweep of NASCAR series wins at Phoenix, while a big wreck on lap 66 caused a red flag and wiped out several top contenders early on.
Jeff Gordon put an end to a 66-race winless streak in the Sprint Cup and finally claimed his first win since 2009 with an emphatic performance at the Phoenix International Roadway. The gap between wins is the longest Gordon has done without a trip to victory road in his NASCAR career.

His strong run of an unbeaten 138 laps in the lead edged out Kyle Busch, who was attempting to claim his third NASCAR series race win of the weekend at Phoenix having already won in the Truck and Nationwide categories. Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick came in third and fourth ahead of Reed Sorenson.

Kyle Busch was involved in a controversial tussle with Carl Edwards on lap 59 in which the #18 seemed to turn down deliberately and drive the #99 onto the infield grass, causing Edwards to wreck against the wall - an accident that also caught up Jeff Gordon. But that was minor compared to the big wreck just seven laps later caused by Brian Vickers making contact with Matt Kenseth and getting sideways, triggering a massive chain reaction through the field that caught up at least 13 cars and brought out a red for the clean-up.

Daytona 500 champion Trevor Bayne had a solo accident into the wall on lap 50, while David Ragan blew a tyre and hit the wall on lap 127 which saw the #6 car catch fire.
