Cup - Kansas - Race results

10 October 2011

Any thoughts anyone might still have had that Jimmie Johnson's star was on the wane after five years of Sprint Cup success was given a wake-up call by the #48's masterful victory in Sunday's Hollywood Casino 400 on the 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway.

Johnson beat Kasey Kahne to the win by 0.548s in a green-and-white chequered finish in a race extended by five laps by the engine of Chase contender Jeff Gordon with just two laps to go of the original scheduled distance.

It's Johnson's second win in 2011 and the 55th of his Cup career - 20 of which have come in Chase races.

Carl Edwards rallied from a lap down thanks to a number of late-race cautions giving him the free pass back onto the lead lap, and his fifth place just ahead of Kevin Harvick puts him a single point in the lead of the Chase standings after four of the ten post-season races, wich Johnson moving up into a close third position.
