The 2009 Samsung 500 is the seventh race in the 2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup championship.

The 334 lap, 501 miles (806 km) race was held on Sunday, April 5, 2009 at the 1.5 miles (2.4 km) Texas Motor Speedway in the Fort Worth suburb of Justin, Texas. Fox televised the race beginning at 1:30 PM US EDT and radio coverage handled by Performance Racing Network (over-the-air) and Sirius XM Radio (satellite) beginning at 1 PM US EDT. Lasting for 205 minutes, this event ended at approximately 4:25 PM US EDT.[1]

David Reutimann started on the pole. Jeff Gordon won by holding off teammate Jimmie Johnson. 12% of this race was held under caution and the average green flag run was approximately 50 laps.[1] In the process, he snapped a 47-race winless streak, and it was also his first win at Texas Motor Speedway. The only track Gordon has never won at is Kentucky Speedway.
