Johnson secures Chase spot with win at Martinsville

MARTINSVILLE, Virginia — Jimmie Johnson secured his spot in the final four of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup on Sunday with a win in the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway, the first of the three races that make up the Chase round of eight. It was Johnson’s fourth win of the season and his second of the Chase.

With the win, Johnson tied Jeff Gordon with nine-career Martinsville wins.

After Martin Truex Jr. dominated early and Matt Kenseth took over just before lap 200 and dominated the middle portion of the race, Johnson took his first and only lead with about 100 laps remaining in the 500 -lap race and ran up front the rest of the way.
