Jimmie Johnson Wins Second Straight [VIDEO]

After going three months before winning his first race of the season all of a sudden Jimmie Johnson has put together two in a row.  Following up his Coca Cola 600 victory, Johnson dominated Dover’s Monster Mile for his ninth career victory at the one mile track.  He led 272 of the 400 laps and held off pole sitter Brad Keselowski on a late restart and very much looks like he could extend his string of championships to seven.

Following Keselowski, Matt Kenseth came in third for his tenth Top-10 finish of the season to take over the points lead from Jeff Gordon.  Clint Bowyer and Denny Hamlin rounded out the Top-5.

Kyle Busch’s bid for a triple header weekend sweep ended on Lap 125 when a nudge from Bowyer sent Busch’s car into the garage bringing his day to an end.  Busch had won the Truck Series race on Friday and the Nationwide Series race on Saturday.  He looked like a strong contender to win on Sunday after leading 81 laps.

The race was red flagged twice.  Once to clean up after a 3-car wreck in the backstretch and another that lasted nearly 23 minutes to repair the track when a piece of concrete damaged Jamie McMurray’s car.

Next on the schedule is a trip to Pocono.
