Two in a row! Jimmie Johnson wins for the second race in a row with today’s victory at Monster Mile.

BpE5ACGCcAAG75gAfter a 4-lap dash to the finish, it was last week’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) Coca-Cola 600 winner, Jimmie Johnson, going to victory lane in Sunday’s NSCS FedEx 400 at Dover International Speedway.

Johnson, who dominated the race by leading the most laps – 272 out of 400, received his second win of the 2014 season, his sixty-eighth series career win and his ninth series win in taming “the Monster Mile.”

Following Johnson to the drop of the checkered flag by 0.885 seconds to finish second was pole-sitter, Brad Keselowski, and they were followed by the new series points leader, Matt Kenseth finishing third, Clint Bowyer fourth and Denny Hamlin finished fifth.

Rounding out the top-ten finishing positions were Martin Truex, Jr., claiming sixth-place, Tony Stewart seventh, Joey Logano eighth, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. ninth and Paul Menard brining home tenth.

With Matt Kenseth’s third-place finish, he leaves Dover with a 2-point lead over Jeff Gordon, who finished fifteenth.
