MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) - Jimmie Johnson held off Kyle Busch on a restart with five laps to go Sunday and won for the seventh time in his career at Martinsville Speedway.
The five-time series champion moved into the lead in the championship standings, two points over Brad Keselowski with three races remaining.
Keselowski started 32nd, methodically worked his way forward, and took a late gamble to grab the lead on a restart with 19 laps to go. When Johnson and the rest of the leaders pitted for tires, Keselowski was a sitting duck once the race went back to green.
Johnson made the race a points bonanza, leading the most laps and earning three points for the victory.
Busch was second, followed by Kasey Kahne.
