Six-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson got to start his off week a little early, and that’s not a good thing. Johnson suffered a tire failure on the seventh lap of the NASCAR Sprint Cup series Camping World RV 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway Sunday. Johnson, who had started second and was second at the time, was able to slow and made it to pit road under green.

Johnson went a lap down and was hoping to fight his way back when disaster struck again on lap 14. Johnson lost another left rear tire. This time he couldn’t recover and spun hard into the turn 1 wall.

“The first one (tire) I was able to drive the car all the way through Turns 1 and 2,” Johnson said. MORE>>>
