Jimmie Johnson scored a first Sunday. After years of bad luck in the Irish Hills of Michigan for the first time in his storied career Johnson scored a win at Michigan International Speedway winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup series Quicken loans 400. Johnson and his Hendrick Motorsports crew played their pit strategy perfectly as Johnson took the lead with ten laps to go and never looked back.  The win marked his third win of the season and third in the last four weeks.

Kevin Harvick, who started from the pole, finished second for the third consecutive time at Michigan, Brad Keselowski was third, Paul Menard fourth, and Kasey Kahne who had spun earlier, rallied to finish fifth.

“We have figured out every way to lose this race,” Johnson said in victory lane. “Today we were able to get it done.” MORE>>>
