The car — splashed with logos touting Gordon's crusade to wipe out hunger among older Americans — held off a challenge from his teammate Jimmie Johnson to earn his 85th career win and sole possession of third place for most all-time NASCAR victories.

The NASCAR champ has joined AARP and AARP Foundation in the Drive to End Hunger campaign. The campaign supported a local food drive on Sept. 1 at BJ's Wholesale Club in Conyers, Ga.

Up next: the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Richmond on Sept. 10.
