Jimmie Johnson won his third race of the season and padded his points lead as he cruised to victory at the Party In The Poconos 400 Sunday at Pocono Raceway.

Johnson led 128 of the race's 160 laps, finishing ahead of Greg Biffle, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Tony Stewart and Ryan Newman.

"Jimmie was in a league of his own," said Biffle.

"Jimmie was flying through Turn 3 and on the straightaway, and if you're gonna be good here, that's where you've got to be good," said Earnhardt.
