Dover, Del. (AP) - Jimmie Johnson dominated again and has won for the seventh time at Dover International Speedway on Sunday.

Johnson matches Richard Petty and Bobby Allison for most career victories on the 1-mile concrete track. Johnson also stretches the Hendrick Motorsports' winning streak to three. Johnson won at Darlington Raceway and Kasey Kahne won the Coca Cola 600.

Johnson also won the non-points All-Star race during that span as the No. 48 Chevrolet is heating up as he chases a sixth Cup championship.

Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Clint Bowyer round out the top five.

Johnson won his second race of the season. He celebrated in Victory Lane wearing a multicolored circus wig as part of a sponsorship promotion for a movie.
