LONG POND, Pa. (AP) - Jimmie Johnson absolutely dominated Sunday at Pocono Raceway to win his third race of the season.
The Sprint Cup points leader, Johnson pulled away on both of the last two restarts that came over the final 10 laps to pull into Victory Lane at Pocono for the first time since 2004.
Johnson also won this season the Daytona 500 and at Martinsville Speedway. He led 128 of 160 laps and was never seriously challenged a week after his run at a win at Dover International Speedway was taken away by a penalty off a restart.
Greg Biffle was second and Dale Earnhardt Jr., Johnson's teammate, was third. Dover winner Tony Stewart was fourth and fellow Stewart-Haas Racing driver Ryan Newman fifth.
Johnson started first and won from the pole after rain washed out Friday's qualifying.
