Six-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson had an eventful Friday at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Johnson, who currently sits in 12th, the final Chase spot, has struggled the last few weeks. Last week at Kansas Speedway, Johnson spun in qualifying and was forced to start deep in the field.  His race went from bad to worse when on Sunday he was swept in a crash and ended the day in 40th.

Fast forward to Thursday at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Johnson’s fortunes seemed to have carried over from Kansas. He did advance from the first of the three knockout qualifying rounds but didn’t have the speed to advance to the final round and settled for a 21st starting spot for Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Bank of America 500. But even before the green flag falls Johnson’s woes continued. Friday during final practice Johnson’s Chevy got loose and scrapped the wall between turns 3 and 4 of the 1.5 mile track on the 63rd lap of the session.

“The good news is it’s just a big scratch on the side of the car,” Johnson said. MORE>>>
