Johnson earns first Bristol Win

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Jimmie Johnson has won for the first time
at Bristol Motor Speedway by driving from sixth to first in just
three laps.

He plowed through the field on a restart with 10 laps to go
Sunday, giving him his third victory this season and the 50th of
his career.

Greg Biffle and Matt Kenseth restarted side-by-side as leaders.
Kenseth had trouble at the line and traffic stacked up behind him.
That allowed Johnson, who restarted in second, to grab four quick
spots.

Tony Stewart had moved into the lead, and Johnson needed just
more than a lap to cruise past Stewart and win.

Stewart was second and Kurt Busch third. Busch led 275 of the
500 laps. He lost the lead by taking four tires on the final pit
stop.
