Four-time defending champ Jimmie Johnson did not win in the desert Saturday night in Phoenix, but the No. 48 seemed poised to do so for much of the race.
With a shocking ninth-place finish at Martinsville, did Jimmie Johnson do enough for our experts to vote him number one on our list?
This week, here’s a sneak peek at what they all were thinking following the Goody’s Fast Pain Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway.
The first races of 2010 are in the books for the Cup Series and one of the hottest teams is the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge driven by Penske Racing’s Kurt Busch.
After Jimmie Johnson scored his first ever win at Bristol Motor Speedway, you can guess where he ended up in our Power Rankings this week.
Kurt Busch reacted to unpalatable defeat like he was drinking a cup of cold sick. “I’d rather lose to any of the other 41 cars out there than the No. 48 car.”
Let me go on the record as saying that if anyone not named Jimmie Johnson wins the championship this season, it’ll be Kurt Busch.
Playing second fiddle to Kurt Busch all day, Jimmie Johnson took advantage of a great final restart with 10 laps to go to score his first victory at Bristol.
As the pre-race activities wrapped up, it became clear Sunday’s race at Bristol was not going to be a sell-out, ending a 55-race streak.
Given the situation he now finds himself in, Brad Keselowski could not have a better teammate than Kurt Busch.
