When it comes to sports, few are as dominant at anything as Jimmie Johnson is at Dover. While there have certainly been a few poor runs, Johnson has dominated at the Monster Mile, winning a record eight times. He'll get an opportunity to make it nine wins on Sunday at the FedEx 400.
Johnson's success at Dover isn't just about his lofty win totals. He consistently runs strong and led at least 100 laps in nine of his previous 10 starts at the track. While his previous success doesn't guarantee anything for the race on Sunday, it would be more surprising if he wasn't a factor in the end than if he was. Johnson won't start in front, however, that will be Brad Keselowski. Keselowski won the pole, with Kyle Busch set to start second, Joey Logano third and Johnson fourth.
