LONG POND, Pa. –No better than 10th in any of his last four races, Jimmie Johnson is looking to reverse his fortunes at a track where he’s recorded seven top 10s in his previous nine starts and Hendrick has captured the last four Sprint Cup checkered flags.

“It’s no secret that the middle portion of the year has always been a challenge for the No. 48,” Johnson said. “This year has been as inconsistent as probably any of them for us.

“When the Chase starts, we roll into our 10 best tracks, so we’re trying to maintain sanity until then and obviously keep progressing.”
