Jimmie Johnson will leave Phoenix International Raceway with a 28 point lead over Matt Kenseth following the running of the Advocare 500.

With the competition of 312 laps at Phoenix the driver of the No. 48 has all but locked up his sixth series championship.

Johnson entered Sunday’s race at Phoenix with a seven point lead over Kenseth and began the race on the pole. He ultimately finished third while Kenseth finished 23rd nearly eliminating him from title contention.

WINNER: Harvick wins at Phoenix, full results for Advocare 500

The lead by Johnson all but assures him of winning his sixth NASCAR Sprint Cup Series title entering Homestead. Johnson simply needs a 23rd or better fnish. (If Kenseth wins and earns all bonus points)
