Jimmie Johnson was able to hold off Kevin Harvick at Dover International Speedway Sunday. He scored the 74th win of his career and his fourth of the season leading all drivers. Johnson also became just the fifth NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver with 10 or more wins at a single track joining Richard Petty, Darrell Waltrip, Dale Earnhardt and David Pearson. Here’s how the race went down at Dover Sunday.
Pole sitter Denny Hamlin led to the green from the outside. He was in a clear lead by the exit of turn two; Truex, Kenseth, Larson and Harvick were the top five. Harvick went to fourth by lap 3.
After starting in the back of the field for changing a rear gear, Dale Earnhardt Jr. was up to 30th by lap 11. MORE>>>
