NASCAR Sprint Cup Series: AAA Texas 500 at Texas – Race Results

The speed in Jimmie Johnson’s No. 48 Chevrolet was positively jaw-dropping.

Able to pull away from his pursuers with apparent ease, Johnson finished three positions ahead of Matt Kenseth in Sunday’s AAA Texas 500, breaking a tie for the lead in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. But make no mistake — Johnson’s performance amounted to a brutal bludgeoning of Kenseth and the rest of the opposition.

Kenseth hurt his own cause with a pit road speeding penalty, but not even a perfect day on pit road likely would have overcome the dominance of the five-time champion, who led 255 of 334 laps en route to his third victory atTexas Motor Speedway, his sixth of the season and the 66th of his career.

“We came here and tested and did an awesome job of understanding what I needed in the car and what was going to create speed,” Johnson said after the race. “We came back and had a very smooth qualifying session and practice sessions, and just kept putting more and more speed in the car.
