Jimmie Johnson wins at Dover, maintains momentum

Jimmie Johnson won his second consecutive NASCAR Sprint Cup race Sunday, dominating the FedEx 400 at Dover International Speedway.

Johnson, a six-time Sprint Cup champ who won the Coca-Cola 600 last week at Charlotte Motor Speedway, finished ahead of runner-up and pole-winner Brad Keselowski by .885ths of a second.

Matt Kenseth, Clint Bowyer and Denny Hamlin rounded out the top five.

The race was stopped for 22 minutes when a chunk of concrete was knocked out of the race surface and run over by the car of Jamie McMurray. The hole was filled in and patched with quick-dry cement.
