News: Johnson finished fifth in the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway Sunday afternoon. Impact: Johnson revived his championship hopes with what can only be called a workmanlike effort at the Magic Mile. The No. 48 Chevrolet wasn't the fastest car on the track, and things didn't come easy for the six-time champion. However, the skill of this driver and strategy of this crew chief helped to push the No. 48 Chevrolet steadily up the running order. At the completion of 300 miles of racing, Johnson had picked up his ninth Top-5 finish of the season. The Hendrick Motorsports star climbs two spots in the Chase standings and now sits fourth overall heading to Dover next week.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson said the cooling system for his helmet was blowing warm air and that likely caused his dehydration following last week's race at Richmond. Johnson said the issue with his cooling system was discovered by his Hendrick Motorsports team on Tuesday, the Associated Press reports. Impact: "It's nice to have a good idea as to what went wrong and why I got so hot in the race car," Johnson said. "It's a newer system that we've implemented, so we're just going back to our old faithful system that's worked for years and years. We should have the problem rectified." Johnson was severely dehydrated after the Richmond race and had to be helped to the infield care center for iv fluids. The cooling system in his No. 48 Chevrolet has been returned to the old reliable system, so this problem shouldn't resurface during the Chase.(RotoWire, )
