Johnson wins Martinsville, takes over points lead

Johnson, a five-time series champion, raced to his seventh career victory on NASCAR’s trickiest oval Sunday.

And the triumph helped him erase a seven-point deficit and supplant Keselowski as the points leader with three events remaining in the championship race.
