Martinsville - Cup results

Jimmie Johnson dominated the STP Gas Booster 500 at Martinsville Speedway on Sunday, leading 346 of the 500 laps to lead Clint Bowyer to the line.
Jimmie Johnson made Martinsville Speedway look easy on Sunday, dominating the NASCAR Sprint Cup STP Gas Booster 500 championship race to claim his eighth victory in 23 starts at the half-mile oval circuit.

It's Johnson's 62nd victory in 405 series starts and his second in 2013, and puts him back on top of the Sprint Cup points standings by six points over current reigning champion Brad Keselowski, who finished this week's race in sixth place.

Johnson dominated Sunday's race, leading 346 of the 500 laps of the event. The only other significant spells at the front were by Joe Gibbs Racing duo Matt Kenseth (96 laps) and Kyle Busch (56) but both faded toward the end of the race. Johnson's Hendrick team mates Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne also had strong outings but the fourth member of the squad, Dale Earnhardt Jr., finished two laps down after a series of misfortunes.

Danica Patrick recovered from an early spin and going two laps down to finish in 12th place, the best result of the rookies.
