Johnson leads 128 of 160 laps at Pocono, rolls to dominating win

Johnson won for third time at Pocono Raceway on Sunday
Jimmie Johnson lost last week’s race at Dover when he was penalized for jumping the final restart.

He made no such mistakes Sunday.

Johnson held the lead on four late restarts to finish off a dominating performance at Pocono Raceway for his third points win of the season.

Of course, it's easy to be near-perfect when you have a car as fast as Johnson's.

"That's the best car I've had in a long, long, long time," Johnson said. "What a racecar."

Johnson held off Ryan Newman and Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the final restarts to maintain the lead. Earnhardt made a bid for the lead on a restart with nine laps to go, but Johnson held on.

Johnson then pulled away from Earnhardt on the final restart with four laps remaining while Greg Biffle blasted by Earnhardt for second.

The oddsmakers at LVH are pretty sharp. Just before Jimmie Johnson's dominating Pocono win, they lowered his odds from +500 to +225.
