After nearly two years, Jeff Gordon made his way back to victory lane by winning the Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Phoenix International Raceay on Sunday. The win was the first for Gordon in 67 races and his 83rd career win, overall, tying him for fifth on the Sprint Cup all-time win list with Cale Yarborough.

"We just beat Kyle Busch," Gordon radioed to his crew before heading to victory lane.

Gordon led the most laps, 138 of the 312-lap event, but had to get by and hold off a hard-charging Busch in the closing laps. An eighth caution came out with 27 laps to go after a wreck by Andy Lally, bunching the field up for a 21-lap sprint to the finish.

Stewart restarted in the top spot after taking only two fresh tires -- a move that got Stewart-Haas Racing teammate Ryan Newman to victory lane at PIR a year ago. The move didn't pan out as well for Stewart, as both Busch and Gordon blew right by him right after the green flag came back out.

As Stewart sunk back through the field to wind up with a seventh-place finish, Busch and Gordon pulled away to fight it out between themselves for the win. Gordon got by Busch with eight laps to go and drove on to the win.

Busch ended up just one position shy of a weekend sweep (after winning Friday's Camping World Truck Series race and Saturday's Nationwide Series event) with a second-place finish on Sunday.

Jimmie Johnson finished third, Kevin Harvick was fourth and Newman rounded out the top-five.

Sunday's race saw a lot of attrition, as there were eight cautions -- one of them involving 13 cars -- and a 14-minute red flag period. Even Busch and Gordon weren't able to escape at least slight damage.

Busch set off a chain reaction that led to the fourth caution of the day on lap 61 when he made contact with Carl Edwards, sending Edwards into the inside curb and back up in front of oncoming traffic. Gordon was among the drivers who sustained damage from the accident.

The biggest caution of the day happened on lap 67 when Vickers spun in front of much of the field. Cars collected during the incident included Jamie McMurray, Marcos Ambrose, Jeff Burton, Clint Bowyer, Regan Smith, David Ragan, David Reutimann, Robby Gordon, Casey Mears, Travis Kvapil and Matt Kenseth.
