HOMESTEAD, Fla. –The golden horseshoe was nowhere to be found for Jimmie Johnson Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The five time champion whose team has been known to overcome great adversity in the past, saw his hopes for a sixth title end in the Sprint Cup garage.
For much of the Ford 400 Johnson kept the title just out of reach of Brad Keselowski, running ahead of and sometimes dogging Keselowski, who needed to finish 15th or better to clinch the title.
“We were in position and putting pressure on the 2 car like we needed to,” Johnson said. I said at the beginning of the week15th isn’t a lay-up and I certainly had him in position.” MORE>>>
