Jimmie Johnson showed why he is a five time champion Sunday as he staged another dominating win leading 243 of the 400 laps to score his eighth NASCAR Sprint Cup win at Dover International Speedway.

Johnson took two tires on a final pit stop with 26 laps to go while his teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. took four. Johnson however was able to keep Earnhardt in check to score his fifth win of the season and his first since Daytona in July.  The win also broke a tie for all time wins at Dover with Richard Petty and Bobby Allison.

Behind Earnhardt, Joey Logano was third, Jeff Gordon fourth and Kyle Busch fifth. MORE>>>
