The Associated Press

DOVER, Del. – Jimmie Johnson won Sunday’s FedEx 400 presented by Autism Speaks, his record ninth victory at Dover International Speedway in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Johnson, who had hernia surgery in December, led 272 of 400 laps. He took the Coca-Cola 600 in Concord, N.C., the previous weekend. The six-time Cup champion won consecutive races for the 13th time.

Brad Keselowski finished second. Matt Kenseth was third, good enough to take the season points lead from Jeff Gordon.

Kasey Kahne of Enumclaw finished 19th and Greg Biffle of Vancouver, Wash., was 38th of 43.

The race was red-flagged for 22 minutes to repair a pothole in the concrete track.

“Whatever they put in the pothole, it worked awfully well,” Johnson said.

Other races

Helio Castroneves won the second IndyCar Series Detroit Grand Prix race of the weekend, finishing 1.6836 seconds ahead of Penske Racing teammate Will Power. Power won Saturday’s race.

Richie Crampton raced to his first career Top Fuel victory at the NHRA Summernationals in Englishtown, N.J. Other category winners were Cruz Pedregon (Funny Car), Jeg Coughlin (Pro Stock) and Andrew Hines (Pro Stock Motorcycle).
