Johnson wins, takes Chase lead
FORT WORTH, Texas - Jimmie Johnson led 255 of 334 laps for a dominating victory that put the five-time champion back in the Chase for the Sprint Cup lead with two races left in the season.
Matt Kenseth and Johnson arrived at Texas Motor Speedway tied in points, though Kenseth was the leader based on his seven wins. Kenseth finished fourth and fell seven points back of Johnson in the Chase race.
Johnson got his sixth victory this season, becoming only the second three-time Cup winner at Texas. The No. 48 Hendrick team takes a seven-point lead to Phoenix next week.
