NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race Results: Jimmie Johnson Claims Third All-Star Victory

Jimmie Johnson became the third three-time champion of the Sprint All-Star Race Saturday night, joining Dale Earnhardt and Jeff Gordon as drivers to three-peat. Johnson also won in 2003 and 2006. Johnson led every lap of the final ten-lap dash to pick up the $1 million payday. It continues a terrific week for Johnson, who won last Saturday's Southern 500 at Darlington to give Rick Hendrick his 200th win. His team then claimed the win in Thursday's Pit Crew Challenge.

It is the seventh All-Star win for Hendrick. The legendary car owner easily leads his peers in that category.

Brad Keselowski finished second, ahead of Matt Kenseth, Kyle Busch, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Kevin Harvick, Marcos Ambrose, Kurt Busch, Kasey Kahne, and Ryan Newman rounded out the top-10. A.J. Allmendinger, who contended all night after transferring with his runner-up finish to Earnhardt in the Sprint Showdown, took 11th-place.

All but two drivers finished the race. Defending race champ Carl Edwards and Greg Biffle each blew their Roush-Fenway Ford engines in a spectacular fireball.
