NASCAR Number: 7

May 29, 2013, Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service,

7: The number of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victories posted by Jimmie Johnson at Dover International Speedway, tied for most ever with NASCAR Hall of Famers Richard Petty and Bobby Allison. A season sweep at Dover was responsible for two of Johnson’s three wins as a rookie in 2002, and the five time Cup champion has been strong there ever since. In 22 starts at the Monster Mile, Johnson has won three poles and finished in the top 10 a total of 16 times. He has led 2,318 of a possible 8,804 laps in those 22 races, for a staggering percentage of 26.33.
