DOVER, Delaware — A little bit of strategy and a whole lot of late race speed allowed Matt Kenseth to pull away late to win the FedEx 400 at Dover International Speedway.
Kenseth led the final 32 laps Sunday to win for the second time this season. He joins Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch as two time winners.
"I'm not a big one for kissing guys, but if (engine builder) Doug Yates was here, I'd probably kiss him right now," said Kenseth after the race.
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.
"Golly, I love this place," said Martin. "I always get excited about coming here to race. You know, we had a really fast racecar. Today we finally got a finish."
The 400-mile race was dominated by long stretches of green flag racing. Jimmie Johnson led a race-high 207 laps and finished ninth.
