Matt Kenseth scored his third victory at Dover International Speedway, winning the AAA 400 Drive for Autism to secure a provisional berth in the Sprint Cup playoffs.

Kyle Larson, who led 85 laps, finished second, followed by Chase Elliott, Kasey Kahne and Kurt Busch.

Kenseth, who had several near-misses at wins this season starting with losing the lead of the Daytona 500 in the final corner, held off several furious charges by Larson for his 37th career victory in NASCAR’s premier series. It was the seventh victory in 12 races this year for Joe Gibbs Racing, which has reached victory lane with all four of its drivers (Kenseth, Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Carl Edwards).
