According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Johnson had 5/1 odds to win Sunday’s race, which means a wager of $100 on him to win will pay out an additional $500.

The win for Johnson extended his lead over Keselowski in the point standings, as the two are the only logical contenders for the Sprint Cup title with two races remaining.
