FORT WORTH, Texas - Jimmie Johnson regained the lead on the final restart, beating Brad Keselowski in an ending two-lap shootout to win Sunday at Texas and add to his NASCAR Sprint Cup points lead with two races left.
Johnson led 168 laps, but found himself chasing toward the end. The third restart in the late laps proved to be the charm for the No. 48 Chevrolet.
During that restart on the 333d of 334 laps, Johnson and Keselowski were side-by-side. Johnson charged hard on the outside and cleared him on the backstretch. He held on for the final 11/2 laps to win from the pole for the second week in a row.
