Jeff Gordon Kissing The Bricks After Winning His Fourth Brickyard 400 (2004)

Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson will both be going for their fifth Brickyard 400 win at the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway next Sunday (July 27).

They are two of four multiple winners, including two-time winners Dale Jarrett and “Smoke,” Tony Stewart.

What’s a bit odd is there are more multiple runners-up, five: Bobby Labonte, Kyle Busch (incl. 2014), Mark Martin, Matt Kenseth and three-time bridesmaid, Rusty Wallace. At least Labonte won one, too.

The Brickyard 400 was introduced on the circuit 20 years ago (1994). Gordon won the first.

Only Johnson won two in a row (2008 and 2009).

UPDATED LIST: Through the 2014 Brickyard 400. Jeff Gordon takes the record again with his fifth Brickyard win, breaking his tie with Jimmie Johnson and handing Kyle Busch another second place.
