Kenseth out-thinks Johnson and Edwards to claim win

Kenseth's victory - the second in five races - puts him in the elite club of drivers to have won two victories so far this season alongside Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch. It's Kenseth's 20th Sprint Cup career victory in 411 starts, and puts him up four places in the Sprint Cup standings to sixth. Mark Martin is inside the Chase in 11th thanks to his runners-up position.

Next week is the Showdown and All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, which is not a Sprint Cup event but a special "exhibition" event. The next Sprint Cup race is at Charlotte the following week, the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday evening which follows the running of the famed Indianapolis 500 during the afternoon.
