Jeff Gordon grabs first win of the season

He climbs back into Chase

MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Jeff Gordon pulled into the championship picture Sunday with a win at Martinsville Speedway, his first of the season.

It was Gordon’s eighth career win at Martinsville, but first since he swept the two races at the track in 2005. He’s tied with Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson for Martinsville victories, but both trail Richard Petty (15) and Darrell Waltrip (11) on the career list.
