Johnson Wins Again in Atlanta

Johnson wins in Atlanta
Jimmie Johnson seems almost unbeatable sometimes at these intermediate race tracks, even though he pinched Tony Stewart a little to take the lead, he would’ve eventually had it anyway, Tony even said as much.

“I wish he had given me a little more room,” Stewart said. “I don’t think I ever pinched him or kept him from having room on the racetrack to race.

“He had a faster car. He was probably going to get around us anyway. But I’d like to see him at least give me room to race him for it.” Source: Stewart miffed, Johnson sorry for late pinch in wall

Anyone else see Tony saying Jimmie was number 1 with the hand signal from behind? These guys are so good they can flip you the bird at 190 mph.

I think we’ll see a little payback somewhere down the line, whether he will admit to it or not is another story. Johnson said he heard the clear signal from his spotter and focused on making a good exit of the turn, and not what Tony was doing, and he ended up pinching him unintentionally. Juan Montoya got his first top five, and Mark Martin is still leading the points and still saying he will skip the next two races. It’s hard to believe that someone who wanted a cup championship all these years would do that, I don’t understand I guess, after retiring two years ago, he’s finally going to do it for real, but only partially for real.
