Axalta Coating Systems and Jeff Gordon Notch Third Win of Season

Brilliant Flames No. 24 Axalta Chevrolet SS sets record speeds and earns Gordon his 91st career win.

Axalta Coating Systems and driver Jeff Gordon notched another win at Michigan International Speedway (MIS) on August 17, 2014, the third win of the season and 91st career win for the four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion.
Record-breaking speed led Gordon to capture a second pole position of the season, making it his sixth at MIS and his 76th career pole. Brilliant Flames was dominant the entire weekend, clocking top speeds in practice.
"So much credit goes to [crew chief] Alan [Gustafson] and the Axalta Racing crew," Gordon said. "Those building the chassis, the bodies, the engines – everyone at Hendrick Motorsports – are on top of their game right now. We’ve been bringing great race cars to the track every weekend which makes it a lot of fun."
"This has been a magical year for Axalta," said Wade Robinson, Axalta strategic marketing and racing director. "We are pleased to have the opportunity to bring customers to these events to experience the excitement of racing and the thrills of winning. We cannot be more proud of our partnership with Hendrick Motorsports. We look forward to our next sponsored race in Talladega in October. We paint winners!"
