Jimmie Johnson had a fast car and some fast hands in Sunday’s AdvoCare 500 at Phoenix International Raceway.
Sunday’s race at Phoenix International Raceway featured a variety of pit strategies, some great saves, a few terrible pit stops and one epic burnout.
Check out the best — and worst — of this weekend’s action from Phoenix in GIF form!
Dale Earnhardt Jr. was able to thread the needle and narrowly escape the day’s biggest wreck involving David Reutimann, Cole Whitt, Justin Allgaier and Danica Patrick.
If you thought Dale Jr.’s last-second maneuver was nice, check out the sweet hand work by Jimmie Johnson after getting hit in the left rear by Carl Edwards. This may become a six-time save.
While Johnson was avoiding trouble on the track, Matt Kenseth and his Joe Gibbs Racing team were doing their best to find it. Perhaps this 25.6-second pit stop best sums up their day in Phoenix.
Carl Edwards looked as if he was about to sweep the season’s races at Phoenix, but came up one lap short on fuel. Edwards apparently took out his frustration by pushing his car back to the garage. It’s all good, Carl’s got this.
You know who had enough fuel to make it to the end? Kevin Harvick. In fact, he had enough gas in the tank for this sweet burnout.
