Mark Martin finishes 2nd at Dover

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Matt Kenseth pulled away late on the strength

of a two-tire pit stop to win the Sprint Cup race at Dover

International Speedway.

Kenseth led the final 32 laps Sunday to win for the second time

this season. He also won at Texas and became the third driver to

win twice this season.

Mark Martin was second and Marcos Ambrose third. Kyle Busch and

Brian Vickers round out the top five. Busch was forced to start in

the rear of the field because of an engine change.

Kenseth made his Cup debut at Dover in 1998 as a fill-in for

Bill Elliott.

The 400-mile race was dominated by long stretches of green flag

racing. Jimmie Johnson led a race-high 207 laps and finished ninth.
