Johnson beat Clint Bowyer by 0.002 seconds as the two nearly finished at the same time. Jeff Gordon held the lead entering the final lap but Bowyer made a charge behind a push from Kevin Harvick while Johnson charged from behind thanks to the help of Earnhardt. Gordon wound up third for the race.

According to oddsmakers at online sports book Sportsbook.com, Johnson had 15/1 odds to win Sunday’s race, so a $100 wager on Johnson will pay out an additional $1,500.

The win is the first for Johnson this year and it now pushes him to second in the point standings, five behind Carl Edwards. Earnhardt Jr. has now climbed to third with his efforts.
