DOVER, Del. — Brad Keselowski had fuel to spare for a couple of victory burnouts.


Those few splashes of gas left down the stretch were just enough for a checkered flag — and a sign Keselowski is a championship favorite.


With other contenders battling fuel woes and limping toward pit road, Keselowski had enough gas in the No. 2 Dodge to win Sunday at Dover International Speedway for his second victory in three weeks.


Keselowksi's stout start to the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship allowed him to swipe the points lead from Jimmie Johnson.


Keselowski holds a five-point lead over Johnson as the Chase shifts to Talladega Superspeedway. Keselowski, who won the Chase opener at Chicagoland, has deftly avoided the famed Big Ones that strike the Alabama track to win twice there in seven career starts.


He held off a late push from runner-up Jeff Gordon to match Denny Hamlin for the season victory lead with five.


"I can't state loudly enough how much longer this battle is," Keselowski said.
