The Go Bowling.400 may not have gone how Jimmie Johnson had planned but he will leave Pocono Raceway with the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series point lead.

Johnson came to the 2.5 mile triangle track located in Long Pond, PA with a 75 point lead over Clint Bowyer. The race was Johnson’s for the taking early on but a cut tire forced him to a 13th place finish.

RESULTS: Kasey Kahne wins at Pocono

While Johnson keeps the points lead the real battle is shaping up between drivers fighting to be in the top ten. Kasey Kahne found victory lane at Pocono for his second win of the season. Sunday’s win will go along way to cementing Kahne’s chances for the Chase.
