NASCAR point standings: After Texas, Jimmie Johnson extends Chase lead

Everything about this Chase seems more and more familiar as Jimmie Johnson continues to lead the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series point standings with two races to go.

NASCAR fans have seen this all before – five times before, to be exact. Johnson is so lethal in the Chase, it starts to seem nearly inevitable he'll win again.

This time, Johnson's lead is seven points over Brad Keselowski after winning Sunday's Texas race – his second win in a row.

But Johnson isn't ready to proclaim victory yet, of course.

"It's a small amount of control, but we're definitely in control," Johnson said. "We don't have to catch up or make up any points. (But) seven points is nothing to feel comfortable about and relax on.

"We're still going to go to Phoenix and act as if we're behind and go in there and try to sit on the pole and win the race again."

Here are the NASCAR Chase standings after Texas:

  1. Jimmie Johnson
  2. Brad Keselowski -7
  3. Clint Bowyer -36
  4. Kasey Kahne -58
  5. Matt Kenseth -72
  6. Jeff Gordon -72
  7. Denny Hamlin -73
  8. Tony Stewart -80
  9. Martin Truex Jr. -80
  10. Greg Biffle -83
  11. Kevin Harvick -101
  12. Dale Earnhardt Jr. -151
