SPARTA, Ky. (AP) - Matt Kenseth's fuel-only pit road gamble helped him beat Jimmie Johnson late and win Sunday's rescheduled 400-mile NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Kentucky Speedway.
A race that was Johnson's to lose ultimately became Kenseth's series-high fourth victory of the season even though he passed on getting new tires following the race's ninth caution. He widened his lead after a wild four-wide restart on lap 246 that saw Johnson's No. 48 Chevy spin from second place on a dominant day he led 182 of 267 laps. The series points leader finished ninth.
Kenseth led twice for 38 laps, including the final 23 in the No. 20 Toyota.
Second was Jamie McMurray in a Chevy, followed by Clint Bowyer, Joey Logano and Kyle Busch.
Rain on Saturday forced NASCAR officials to postpone the race to a daytime start.
