It was basically a two-car race Saturday night at Texas Motor Speedway.

Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick dominated, leading nearly 225 laps combined in the Duck Commander 500.

But in the end it was Johnson who was that much better as the No. 48 car took the checkered flag under the lights in Fort Worth.

The win was Johnson’s fifth-career at the 1.5-mile track and 72nd victory in the series, which is 8th all-time.

Harvick continued his strong season with a second-place finish, while Dale Earnhardt Jr. placed third. Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski rounded out the top 5.
