From "The Rundown" : Fifth Is First Is Fourth

Jimmie Johnson finishes fifth at the Homestead-Miami Speedway, more than good enough to capture the Sprint Cup (and a delicious giant bottle of bubbly) for the fourth straight year. Besides Jimmie, only Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt, and Jeff Gordon have won at least four championships. Besides Jimmie, none of them ever did it in a row. It's history. It's the SportsCenter Highlight of the Night.

Mark Martin finishes 12th, meaning he finishes second. And Jeff Gordon finishes 6th, meaning he finishes third, meaning Hendrick Motorsports finishes 1-2-3 in points - the first team to do so in NASCAR Sprint Cup history.
