Mark Martin has won at Chicagoland Speedway, getting the strong jump off the double-file restart with two laps left to win his series-high fourth race of the season.
The 50-year-old Martin led 195 laps on Saturday night, the most
at the 400-mile race. He dominated most of the early part of the
race until he dropped the lead to Jimmie Johnson with just over 40
laps left.
But a frantic finish that saw Johnson and Kurt Busch tangle on
the track allowed Martin his chance to regain the lead.
Jeff Gordon's hard-charging finish got him second place.
Martin and Gordon are Hendrick Motorsports teammates and earned
a $1 million bonus. The teammates also grabbed the top two spots at
the LifeLock sponsored race in June, setting up the shot at the big
cash prize.
