Peter Casey-USA TODAY Sports

Five-time Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson is in a familiar place.

Jimmie Johnson has a six-point lead in the Sprint Cup standings following his win in the STP Gas Booster 500 at Martinsville on Sunday. The victory made Johnson the first multiple-race winner of the 2013 season, and it marked the third time that he's finished a race in the top five.

Brad Keselowski, who is second in the standings, logged his fifth top-10 finish of the year, though he hasn't broken through with a victory yet. Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kyle Busch and Kasey Kahne round out the top five. Busch and Kahne also have won races in 2013.

Here's a look at the top 10:

1. Jimmie Johnson (231 points)
2. Brad Keselowski (225)
3. Dale Earnhardt Jr. (219)
4. Kyle Busch (203)
5. Kasey Kahne (199)
6. Greg Biffle (199)
7. Carl Edwards (193)
8. Clint Bowyer (179)
9. Paul Menard (179)
10. Matt Kenseth (172)
