|Kenseth Pulls Away Late, Wins at Dover
|DOVER, Del. (AP) -- Matt Kenseth pulled away late on the strength of a two-tire pit stop to win the Sprint Cup race at Dover International Speedway.
Kenseth led the final 32 laps Sunday to win for the second time this season. He also won at Texas and became the third driver to win twice this season.
Mark Martin was second and Marcos Ambrose third. Kyle Busch and Brian Vickers round out the top five. Busch was forced to start in the rear of the field because of an engine change.
Kenseth made his Cup debut at Dover in 1998 as a fill-in for Bill Elliott.
The 400-mile race was dominated by long stretches of green flag racing. Jimmie Johnson led a race-high 207 laps and finished ninth.
