Jimmie Johnson continues Hendrick Motorsports' domination by winning at Dover for the third Hendrick win in as many races. While the race was dominated by Johnson, Dick Berggren dominated everyone's thoughts throughout the race weekend. Berggren was retiring from FOX's NASCAR coverage, and was going to begin building a motorsports museum in New Hampshire. This weekend was also the final race for FOX for the 2012 season. Next week, the race will be shown on TNT; at 12 p.m., the Sprint Cup Series will roll into the "Tricky Triangle," Pocono International Raceway, for the Pocono 400.
