Jimmie Johnson scored his fourth win of the season and his first in 18 tries Sunday in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway .It marked the third win in a row at Texas for Johnson as he led a race high 191 of 341 laps for his 70th career win.

“It’s a testament to this team and the fact that we’ll never give up,” Johnson said. “We’ll always keep fighting and keep trying to make our cars better. We’re not in the Chase and not where we want to be – fighting for the championship.”

“It’s just a Chase that was tough for us but to redeem ourselves here and come out with a victory is really cool,” he added. “Last weekend in Homestead where we were testing, we found some speed we’ve been missing and we found comfort in the car and got it right.”

That wasn’t the story of the night however. For the second race in the Chase, a brawl broke out on pit road that involved Brad Keselowski and left bloody lips and bad feelings among several crews.  MORE>>>
