Drive to End Winless Streak at 66
AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Jeff Gordon's car was solid, he was able to overcame a slew of obstacles and led the most laps around at Phoenix International Raceway. Regardless of whether he won the race or not, he was going to be pleased with his weekend.

To actually grab those checkers, ending the longest winless streak of his career, well, it couldn't have gotten much better than that.

Gordon overcame several potentially troublesome incidents and passed Kyle Bush with eight laps left, ending his winless streak at 66 races with a persevering victory Sunday.

``It hasn't been fun, I can tell you that much,'' Gordon said of the previous two years. ``Today, that's what made this victory so special. We battled, we raced them and it was so cool to experience.''

Gordon joins a running list of drivers to end long winless streaks at PIR. Ryan Newman ended his checkerless drought at 77 races at PIR's spring race last year and Carl Edwards stopped his at 70 races without a win in the fall.
