Johnson Wins Again at Dover

Jimmie Johnson had yet another a strong performance at Dover International Speedway, and he held off Brad Keselowski on a late restart to win for a record ninth time at the track in Sunday's FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks.

It was a strong performance that came one week after Johnson earned his first win of the season at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The six-time series champion led 272 laps to win for the second straight week.

Polesitter Brad Keselowski struggled early but rallied during the middle portion of the race to earn a runner-up finish.

Matt Kenseth used a third-place finish to take over the points lead from Jeff Gordon. Kenseth's 10 top-10 finishes are the most in the series this season.

Clint Bowyer and Denny Hamlin rounded out the top five.

Kyle Busch's tripleheader sweep hopes came to an end on Lap 125 when he hit the wall after some contact from Clint Bowyer. That contact sent Busch into the garage and ended his day. Busch had won the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Lucas Oil 200 on Friday and the NASCAR Nationwide Series Buckle Up 200 presented by Click It of Ticket on Saturday. Busch was strong early as he led 81 laps but came up short in his bid to match his tripleheader sweep at Bristol in the summer of 2010.

A red flag came up for a caution following a Lap 135 crash involving AJ Allmendinger, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Greg Biffle. The red flag was to clear the track of debris in the backstretch from the wreck and lasted 6 minutes and 39 seconds.

The second red flag came out at Lap 161 and lasted 22 minutes and 22 seconds, following a caution that came out at Lap 158 when Jamie McMurray got into the wall in Turn 2. Track officials came out because a sizable piece of the concrete track came loose and necessitated track repairs.

Kevin Harvick was leading at the time of second red flag and shortly after the race resumed, he had a flat tire that took him out of the lead and put him two laps down at the time.

Brian Vickers saw his car blow an engine to end his day 73 laps into the race.

The Sprint Cup Series will return to action next Sunday, June 8 at Pocono Raceway for the Pocono 400.
