Johnson Pulls it Out at the End

Looked like Tony Stewart might get his first win on Sunday, but a hard charging Jimmie Johnson had a different ending in mind.

Jimmie Johnson won the Autism Speaks 400 at Dover International Speedway this past Sunday and even though he dominated most of the race, a bad pit stop forced him to restart in eighth and race his way past Greg Biffle, Matt Kenseth, Tony Stewart and others to take the lead with only a couple or three laps to go. I wasn’t really rooting for anyone at the end, but it was some good racing, Jimmie was coming like a rocket ship and Tony kept trying to keep him out of his groove to slow his momentum, but there was only so much Tony could do. Once Jimmie was past him, there was no way Tony was going to catch him to lay the bumper on him, so it was all over but the celebrating.

Tony did take the points lead from Jeff Gordon, who finished in 26th a couple laps down, but the points lead doesn’t really matter anymore, Gordon has dominated all year long during the chase before and still not won the championship. All Gordon needs to do now is win more races and get some bonus points to start off good in the chase and keep running good the rest of the way. Of course, that’s all everyone needs to do and it’s always easier said than done.

After the big story this past week of Dale Earnhardt Jr. being separated from his cousin Tony Eury Jr., they managed a respectable 12th place finish, but I believe Dale averages at least a mid pack finish at this track, and he has 7 out of 18 top tens here with one win, so there’s nothing for Jr. nation to celebrate about yet. There was also mention of a little conversation between Dale and Kyle Busch because Kyle had told the media Dale’s problems never seem to be his, always the crew chief. No one knows what they said to each other, but I bet Dale would clean his clock if Kyle got too mouthy with him.

Here is how they finished:
