Jimmie Johnson struggled all day at Texas Motor Speedway and finished 27th in AAA Texas 500.

Johnson has not been able to find his rhythm this year and it is unlikely that he will make it to Homestead-Miami Speedway with a shot at the championship. He is a driver who can miraculously win at will and can never be discounted. Watch him closely in practice next week at Phoenix International Raceway
Nov 5 - 9:11 PM

Jimmie Johnson finished second-worst among the playoff contending drivers in the First Data 500 at Martinsville Speedway. He was 12th.

The points are so tight that even a solid finish like this is not enough to help a driver in the standings. Johnson has not been dominant this season and that could keep him from being part of the playoff picture at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Oct 29 - 8:42 PM

Jimmie Johnson spun on his get-up-to-speed lap in the first few minutes of the first practice session for the Alabama 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway after hitting some debris cutting a tire.

Johnson has five results outside the top 10 in his last six Talladega starts. With a berth on the line for round three of the playoffs, he cannot afford a bad finish.
Oct 13 - 1:16 PM

Jimmie Johnson finished seventh at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Bank of America 500 after starting deep in the field in 25th.

Johnson has not been dominant this year, but that is not necessarily required under the new format. So long as he can stay in playoff contention until Homestead-Miami Speedway, he has a shot at the championship just like 2016.
Oct 8 - 5:18 PM

Jimmie Johnson finished third in the Apache Warrior 400 at Dover International Speedway, which snapped a 15-race streak of results outside the top five.

That is Johnson’s longest streak of modest-to-poor finishes. In order to become one of the premier values, he is going to have to score multiple, consecutive top-fives, however.
Oct 1 - 6:07 PM

Jimmie Johnson will have to roll out a backup car at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the second round of the playoffs.

Johnson sits eighth in the standings, but is only 20 points above the cutoff. He finished eighth last week at Chicagoland Speedway and also at Richmond International Raceway—another short, flat track—but he cannot afford to get too far behind the eight ball.
Sep 22 - 12:52 PM

Jimmie Johnson started 14th and finished eighth in the Taste of the Turtles 400 at Chicagoland Speedway.

Johnson’s qualification effort made it seem like he would have another mediocre day—and while an eighth is less than expected of the seven-time Champion, it could be an indication that this team is starting to turn things around during the playoffs.
Sep 18 - 9:52 AM

Jimmie Johnson finished eighth in the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway, which was his first top-10 in the past seven races.

Johnson came close in the past two events with an 11th at Bristol Motor Speedway and a 12th at Darlington Raceway, but those are not the kind of results fantasy players expect from the multi-Champion. For that matter, neither is an eighth-place finish.
Sep 10 - 2:09 AM

All four Hendrick Motorsports drivers failed to advance to the final round of qualification for the Southern 500.

Jimmie Johnson will start 18th, Chase Elliott 20th, Dale Earnhardt Jr. 22nd, and Kasey Kahne 23rd. This is a track on which drivers can advance during a race, however, and that will contribute to positive place-differential points.
Sep 2 - 2:30 PM

Jimmie Johnson pounded the wall hard in final practice for the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway and will have to roll out a backup car.

Johnson got loose on corner entry and stuck his nose in the wall. He will have to give up his 22nd-place spot on the grid. Johnson also used a backup this spring at Michigan and finished 10th. Three of his last four wins came after he was forced to start in the back.
Aug 12 - 11:54 AM

Jimmie Johnson posted the quickest 10-lap average in final practice for the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway with a speed of 180.951 from laps three through 12.

In that same session, he was fourth-fastest. If he can qualify well, he could be one of this week’s top choices especially in light of recent struggles that have him flying under the radar.
Jul 22 - 12:23 PM

Jimmie Johnson finished 10th in the Overton's 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Johnson earned minimal points because of his loss of place-differential. He jumped the start of the race and was penalized by NASCAR with a drive-through penalty. He never recovered.
Jul 16 - 8:21 PM

Chad Knaus had his laptop stolen from his rental car prior to the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway and reportedly has lost his race notes.

One suspects that he has a backup someplace. When strange things start happening to teams, momentum often shifts, however.
Jun 23 - 4:36 PM

Jimmie Johnson had to come from the back of the pack at Michigan International Speedway after rolling out a backup car. He climbed to 10th in the FireKeepers Casino 400.

Unfortunately, he only received three place-differential points from his official starting position of 13th and that made him minimally attractive at his salary cap level.
