Jimmie Johnson Wins Third In Four Weeks
Jimmie Johnson is back to those old ways we’re all so familiar with. Three wins in the past four weeks, and this latest one came at Michigan International Speedway.
It was an interesting finish, as Johnson came back from being in the teens to take the checkered flag with less than 20 laps to go. The main reason for the giant overtaking was the pit strategies from those in the front vs. those farther back, including Johnson. Those in the front pitted in the waning laps opening the door for those who pitted earlier.
Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski, Paul Menard and Kasey Kahne rounded out the top 5. Jeff Gordon, still the points leader after today, came home 6th.
Next week, we visit Wine Country, as we take on the twists and turns of Sonoma Raceway.
