(Dover, DE) -- Jimmie Johnson conquered the Monster Mile for a record eighth time Sunday in winning the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway. Johnson says this win means a lot to him.

Johnson held off teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the final laps to capture his fifth win of the season and the 65th of his Sprint Cup career. Joey Logano finished third, followed by Jeff Gordon and Kyle Busch. Busch moved to within 12 points of standings leader Matt Kenseth, who ended the day seventh. The Chase heads to Kansas next week.
