BROOKLYN, Mich. (NASCAR) -  The 2013 Quicken Loans 400 was a forgettable day for Hendrick Motorsports.

A year made all the difference.

Jimmie Johnson drove his No. 48 Chevy to his first career win at Michigan International Speedway and Hendrick teammates Kasey Kahne, Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr. landed in the top seven.

The finishes sent the team to next weekend’s stop at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway with the top three spots in the Sprint Cup series standings. Gordon retained his lead, but it’s just 15 points better than Johnson, who jumped from fourth to second with the victory. Earnhardt remained third, 38 points behind Gordon.

“This was a great win for a lot of reasons,” team owner Rick Hendrick said. “It was great to see Jimmie, after leading so many laps here, finally close the deal.

“All our cars ran well. We’ve been kind of clicking here lately.”

A win at Sonoma would give HMS six straight series wins for the first time since 2007.
