Richard Petty’s all-time mark of 200 Cup wins may never be beaten. But by the time Gordon’s career is through, he could push toward the triple digits and perhaps challenge David Pearson, currently No. 2 in Cup wins with 105.

NASCAR AMERICA will continue to look back on Gordon’s historic win at Indy today at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra.
