Jimmie Johnson kept his nose clean in a fractious race to claim his eighth NASCAR Sprint Cup win at Martinsville. Johnson and his Hendrick Motorsport team-mates Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne spent the whole race battling with the Joe Gibbs cars of Kyle Busch and Matt Kenseth, but in the end it was Johnson who took the chequer for the 62nd time in his career. Clint Bowyer brought his battle-scarred Toyota home second after a strong finish, just ahead of Gordon.

It was reminiscent of the fight between Cale Yarborough and Bobby Allison following the 1979 Daytona 500 and it came at a time that may reignite interest in NASCAR.
