DOVER, Del. (AP) -- Jimmie Johnson dominated again at Dover International Speedway, winning the second race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship for his sixth victory of the season.
Johnson won Sunday for the third time in four races on the 1-mile concrete track. He shook off a rare poor finish in last week's Chase opener at New Hampshire to take the pole, win the race and shoot up to second in the points standings.
Jeff Burton was second and non-Chase driver Joey Logano was third. Chase drivers Kurt Busch and Carl Edwards were fourth and fifth.
Danny Hamlin kept his points lead with a ninth-place finish. He holds a 35-point lead over Johnson heading into next week's race at Kansas Speedway. The points leader after Dover has never gone on to win the championship.
