Jimmie Johnson Wins At Dover
Jimmie Johnson could do no wrong on Sunday as he dominated the “Monster Mile” and won the FedEx 400 in Dover.
Things got crazy early when Tony Stewart tapped Landon Cassill on Lap 9 causing a huge wreck that also involved Juan Montoya, Regan Smith, Scott Speed and many others. This accident was said to involve the most cars out of any race so far this season. Other notable names would have trouble in this race as Carl Edwards would smack the wall on Lap 164. Kyle Busch, Kurt Busch and Jeff Burton would all blow engines and Jeff Gordon would have problems after having a good car throughout most of the race that would slow him down after leading 60 laps.
For the most part it was a one man race as Jimmie Johnson’s car was dominant leading the most laps and rather easily getting the win. It was Johnson’s second win of the season and his seventh career win at Dover. Kevin Harvick took second followed by Matt Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt. Jr and Clint Bowyer to round out the top 5. This was Jr’s 8th top 10 this season. It seems he is bound to get off his winless streak this season.
The Sprint Cup Series heads to Pennsylvania next week for the Pocono 400. Jeff Gordon won this race last year. It will be the first race for TNT’s NASCAR coverage and will kick off at Noon next Sunday.
