The big story going into the Advocare 500 at Phoenix was the tight points race between five time champion Jimmie Johnson, and Brad Keselowski, but the big story ended up being Clint Bowyer, and Jeff Gordon with fists flying.
For the second straight week, Jimmie Johnson found himself in victory lane, as he took the checkered flag at the AAA Texas 500 at the Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday. It was Johnson's fifth victory of the season and the 60th of his impressive career.
Jimmie Johnson and Brad Keselowski are in an epic points battle running one and two in points for the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup. At the end of the AAA Texas 500 it was Jimmie Johnson getting the checkered flag only .808 seconds in front of Keselowski.
Some call Jimmie Johnson "Mr. Martinsville", and he proved it Sunday by getting his 7th win at the track. That ties him for wins there with Rusty Wallace, and teammate Jeff Gordon. This victory gives Johnson a two point lead in the chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.
Race number six in the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship took place on Sunday at Kansas Speedway, and Matt Kenseth took the checkered flag. Kenseth's victory at the Hollywood Casino 400 was his third of the season and second in the 10-race chase.
All of the race fans that turned out at Kansas Motor Speedway saw one of the most action packed NASCAR races of the season, and Matt Kenseth got his third win for the 2012 season, and his second inside the Chase for the Cup.
