Johnson led 128 of 160-laps at the "tricky triangle" and pulled away on two late restarts in taking a commanding 51-point lead in the points standings.

Greg Biffle came in second and Johnson's Hendrick Motorsports teammate, Dale Earnhardt Junior, came in third.

Indiana drivers round out the top-five, with Tony Stewart finishing fourth and Ryan Newman securing a fifth place finish. Jeff Gordon finished twelfth at the two and-a-half mile triangle and is currently eleventh in points.

Johnson is followed by Carl Edwards and Clint Bowyer in the points standings.
