Matt Kenseth Wins At Dover

A pretty uneventful race at Dover yesterday and as it turns out so many times it’s pit strategy that pays off.  For the guys that had the best cars, Carl Edwards, Jimmie Johnson and Clint Bowyer their decision to take four tires on the final pit stop put them too far back in the pack to get to the front again.  For Matt Kenseth – he chose to take only two tires and it won him the race.  Kenseth passed Mark Martin with 32 laps left and held on for his 20th Sprint Cup win and second this season.

Nascar’s new championship rules emphasize victories and and now with two Kenseth is getting closer to guaranteeing himself in the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Mark Martin stayed on the track during the final caution.  It put him in the lead on the restart but he settled for second and his best finish of the season.

Marcus Ambrose was third with Kyle Busch and Brian Vickers completing the Top 5.

Carl Edwards led 107 laps and came in seventh.  Jimmie Johnson led a race-high 207 laps and finished ninth.   The two of them battled for the lead most of the day and lost out on that final pit stop.

Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick stayed out of trouble after their run-in last week at Darlington landed them fines and probation.  Harvick came in 10th

The All-Star race is up next on Saturday night at Charlotte.
