NASCAR Sprint Cup points leader and polesitter Jimmie Johnson slammed into the wall in tunnel turn at Pocono Raceway after he cut down a right front tire 75 laps into Sunday’s GoBowling.com 400.
“In the wall,” Johnson radioed. “It’s bad.”
Johnson ignited the fourth caution after leading 43 of 75 laps. After initial repairs, Johnson took a lap and reported the “steering wheel is kind of sticky” and he had developed a push.
Johnson held the best average finish at Pocono Raceway – 8.7 – with three wins on the 2.5-mile track and was going for the sweep on Sunday.
