Jimmie Johnson knows a few things about winning at Dover, well at least 10 of them prior to today and with a wild ending to the AAA 400 today, Johnson was able to take the checkered flag after starting at the rear of the field.
For Johnson this is his 11th victory at the Monster Mile and he did so in exciting fashion after a huge wreck in the final laps forced overtime, where Johnson used his experience at the track to take the checkered.
Larson finished second, with Martin Truex Jr. in third, Ryan Newman in fourth, and Chase Elliott in fifth. Rounding out the top 10 were rookie Daniel Suarez, Jamie McMurray, Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, and Danica Patrick.
To be here and tie him at 83 wins is amazing,” Johnson said. “We just got the tribute helmet. I wasn’t sure how quickly we’d be, or if we’d be able to go there, and get it done. But, Cale, you’re the man. Thank you for all you have done for our sport.”
