Dover: Cup results

Jimmie Johnson ended the recent run of Joe Gibbs Racing success in the 2013 Chase by claiming an emphatic victory over his own Hendrick Motorsport team mate Dale Earnhardt Jr. at Dover on Sunday afternoon.
The first two races of the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chase had been back-to-back one-two successes for Joe Gibbs Racing team mates Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch, but on Sunday at Dover International Speedway it was their turn to watch on as rivals from Hendrick Motorsports took their turn in the spotlight.

Five-time champion Jimmie Johnson secured a record eighth win at Dover in this year's AAA 400 after holding off Dale Earnhardt Jr. to the line by nearly half a second in a final 26-lap run to the finish, making it Johnson's fifth win of the year and his 65th victory in 428 Cup career starts. It's also the first time in Chase history that all top ten spots in a Chase race have been taken by title contenders.

Penske's Joey Logano had a late charge to third place putting him ahead of third Hendrick driver Jeff Gordon, with Kyle Busch having to settle for a solid fifth place ahead of Richard Childress Racing's Kevin Harvick. Points frontrunner Kenseth couldn't make a late two-tyre gamble work in the closing stint and instead dropped to seventh ahead of Stewart-Haas Racing's Ryan Newman, with Roush Fenway's Greg Biffle and Michael Waltrip Racing's Clint Bowyer rounding out the top ten.

Jamie McMurray was the highest non-Chase competitor in 11th ahead of Brian Vickers, with Kasey Kahne (13th) the lowest of the Hendrick cars by the finish. Kurt Busch dropped three laps off the lead with an unscheduled mid-race pit stop for a loose wheel that left him in 21st place, but the Chase driver most damaged by this week's outing was Carl Edwards whose Ford lost power 24 laps from the finish and left him classified in 35th place after repairs were made.

Matt Kenseth continues to lead the point standings, but his advantage is cut to just eight points over Jimmie Johnson who moves into second place ahead of Kyle Busch. Busch drops to third ahead of Kevin Harvick and Jeff Gordon, who were both among beneficiaries of places lost by the plummeting Carl Edwards whose drop was finally arrested in 11th place.
