Jeff Gordon spent only about 35 laps inside the top 10 at Dover from the 400 that made up the distance, but he made them count. He was running 11th and had just lost a lap to the leaders when a caution waved on lap 377. With only a few drivers left on the lead lap, he gained one more spot to finish 10th.
Clint Bowyer entered the FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks at Dover International Speedway with the longest active streak of top-10s. He finished ninth on Sunday and extended that streak to nine consecutive races.
Paul Menard finished eighth in the FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks at Dover International Speedway, which was his sixth consecutive top-20 finish. He has one top-five and two top-10s in that span of races.
Chip Ganassi Racing placed both of their drivers in the top 10 with Jamie McMurray finishing seventh and Kyle Larson crossing under the checkers third in the FedEx 400 at Dover International Speedway.
It was another race-winning run, but ultimately disappointing result for Martin Truex Jr. at Dover International Speedway. He led the most laps with 131, but ultimately picked the wrong strategy at the end of the FedEx 400 before slipping to sixth in the final order.
Aric Almirola has been flirting with the top 10 most of the season and finally broke that barrier in convincing fashion at Dover International Speedway. He finished fifth in the FedEx 400 after starting 23rd.
Kasey Kahne kept his Chevrolet in contention in the FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks at Dover International Speedway and took advantage of a two-tire strategy at the end of the race to gain track position. He held off Martin Truex Jr. and the majority of the field to finish fourth.
Kyle Larson raced with the leaders all afternoon and had the right strategy at the end of the FedEx 400 at Dover International Speedway; he finished third, which was his first top-five of the season. Larson spent nearly 80 percent of the race inside the top 10.
Kevin Harvick finished second in the FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks at Dover International Speedway to score his 11th first- or second-place finish in his past 16 attempts dating back to last fall’s AAA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.
