Kenseth tied for Spring Cup lead, three races left

Jeff Gordon snapped a 32-race winless streak by using a late pass of Matt Kenseth to win at Martinville Speedway.

Gordon got by Kenseth with 21 laps to go and held on for his eighth career victory at Martinsville, but first since 2005.

Kenseth (Cambridge, WI) finished second and Jimmie Johnson was fifth.  That puts Kenseth and Johnson tied atop the Chase Cup standings with three races to remaining in the Spring Cup Championship.
