Jimmie Johnson Wins At Michigan International Speedway
Jimmie Johnson celebrated in Victory Lane at Michigan International Speedway on the Sundat race heard on 630 The Fan.
“About time guys,’’ Johnson said on the radio to his team after taking the checkered flag.
Johnson scored his first win at the track and his third victory in the last four Sprint Cup races.
The win also marks the fifth in a row for Hendrick Motorsports with Jeff Gordon’s triumph at Kansas, Johnson’s victories at Charlotte and Dover, Dale Earnhardt Jr.‘s win at Pocono and Johnson’s victory Sunday at Michigan.
Kevin Harvick placed second with Brad Keselowski third, Paul Menard fourth and Kasey Kahne fifth.
Harvick had one of the stronger cars but pit strategy and a vibration foiled him.
Jeff Gordon finished sixth with Dale Earnhardt Jr. seventh, Kyle Larson eighth, Joey Logano ninth and Clint Bowyer 10th.
