Johnson wins at Martinsville

MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) - Jimmie Johnson pulled away on a restart with eight laps to go to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Martinsville Speedway. It was his eighth career victory on the shortest track in the circuit. Only Richard Petty with 15, and Darrell Waltrip with 11 have won more. The five-time champion picked the inside line for the restart with Clint Bowyer on the outside, teammate Jeff Gordon behind him and Kyle Busch to his outside. Johnson got a clean break into Turn 1.
