Jeff Gordon was leading near the end of the race, but was contacted by Brad Keselowski. That led to a green-white-checkered finish, which Johnson was able to hold off Keselowski and Kevin Harvick for the win.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Johnson had 715/1 odds to win this race coming into the week, which means a wager of $100 on him to win will pay out an additional $700.

The wreck really hurt Gordon, as he ended up 29th and is now in the fourth position in the standings, 1 point ahead of Matt Kenseth for the final spot in the final race with one qualifying race remaining. Keselowski is 5 points back of Gordon while Harvick is 6 points back. Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin are tied for the lead entering the final race and have a 13-point lead on the final qualifying spot. Any of the eight drivers can win next week and automatically qualify for the final race.
