Jimmie Johnson Dominates Dover
Jimmie Johnson Dominatesnascar sprint cup logo
Jimmie Johnson dominated the Dover Sprint Cup race on Sunday and showed the field that he still is the Series Champion and the road for The Chase runs thru the #48 team. Johnson started from pole and led the most laps and won for the 6th time this season and now is second in points behind Denny Hamlin. AJ Allmendinger had a great race at Dover bringing his Petty Racing Ford to the front at the drop of the green flag and held onto the lead for the first part of the race. After a pit stop at around lap 80 he adjusted himself out of the lead but settled at the end of the day for a solid top 10. The other stand out on the day was the Richard Childress Racing’s Jeff Burton Chevy who finished second staying in the top 5 all day but just not having enough horsepower to run down Johnson. Teammate Clint Bowyer struggled with his car all day and finished back in 15th. Joe Gibbs Racing’s Joey Logano came to the flag in third behind Burton, while his teammate Kyle Busch dropped down to sixth place after looking a contender for victory. Hamlin was ninth and scored well enough to remain in the Chase lead by 35 points, the biggest margin ever held after two races in the playoff. Safety-Kleen racers and Penske driver Kurt Busch recovered from a pit speeding penalty to finish fourth ahead of Roush Fenway’s Carl Edwards. Tony Stewart was another Chase contender to hit trouble with an early pit speeding penalty which put him off of the lead lap. He was unable to recover after that and just managed a 21st place in the end. After two Chase races, Greg Biffle, Stewart, Kenseth and Bowyer are now more than 140 points behind point’s leader Hamlin as the teams head for Kansas. The Safety-Kleen branches that surround Chesapeake Bay were all on hand at Dover on Sunday and held a great tailgate party for the area customers. Scott, Greg, Elliot, Bob and the entire crew did a fantastic job.
