Jimmy Johnson Wins at the Monster Mile

Strong all day long in Dover, Jimmie Johnson led 289 of 400 laps, and took the checkered flag for his second win of the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup season.

If you are keeping count, this is the fourth straight victory for Hendrick motor sports, counting the last three point races.  This is the seventh win at Dover for Johnson putting him in a tie with Richard Petty, and Bobby Allison for the most wins ever at the one mile concrete track, affectionately called “the Monster Mile”.  At the end of the day it was Jimmie Johnson for the win, Kevin Harvick finished second, Matt Kenseth third, Dale Earnhardt Jr. was fourth, and rounding out the top 5 was Clint Boyer.  Points leader Greg Biffle finished eleventh, but kept his lead in the points chase by one point.

Next week for the Sprint Cup Series, it is the Pocono 400.  Watch the race Sunday on TNT at 11 a.m. central.
