Jeff Gordon wins at Dover! The Last time Gordon won at Dover was 2001 when he won the championship.

 Dover started with Kevin Harvick leading more than 150 laps.

Unfortunately for Harvick though, he would have problems with his car which allowed Brad Keselowski, who already won a race in the first round of the Chase, to lead at Dover.

Harvick wasn’t the first Chase driver to run into a little bit of trouble as Aric Almriola and AJ Allmendinger found themselves a lap down early on.

Dover saw a couple of caution early on for debris, but Harvick eventually saw himself out in front after a caution despite the issues he was dealing with in the four car.

Halfway through Dover Kevin Harvick was leading while drivers like Kasey Kahne and Aric Almirola were a lap down.

Kasey Kahne would run into more problems as he found himself two laps down by Lap 218, basically ending his championship hopes.

As the race continued to stay green Kevin Harvick continued to lead.

Green flag pit stops started around Lap 250, but after going to pit road, Kevin Harvick had a tire go down and would go off the pace in turn three.

Brad Keselowski would take over as race leader, and even though the 2 team was already locked into the Chase, Keselowski still drove like he had to win the race.

The race at Dover stayed green and has Keselowski caught lapped traffic, Jeff Gordon caught up to Keselowski.

Eventually the 24 would take over first place.

With 50 laps to go Jeff Gordon showed the rest of the field why he was still a top driver in the NASCAR Sprint Cup.

Without a late race caution, Jeff Gordon would continue to lead and will move onto the next round.

Kurt Busch, Greg Biffle, Aric Almirola and AJ Allmendinger where eliminated from the Chase as NASCAR heads into the Contender round.

Winner at Dover: Jeff Gordon!
