GLEN MILLS, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Axalta Coating Systems and driver Jeff Gordon continue to sizzle this summer with another win at Michigan International Speedway (MIS) on August 17, 2014. This is 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.
