Texas Motor Speedway

One more win, One step closer

Six may be Jimmie Johnson’s lucky number. Johnson’s sixth win of the season may have put him on track for his sixth Cup championship. This was a dominant win for Johnson as he led 255 of the 367 laps at Texas Motor Speedway. Combine that with a speeding down pit road penalty for Matt Kenseth and Johnson is looking strong for another Championship trophy. For more details, go to Speedway Digest.

NASCAR at Talladega

McMurray takes this win, Johnson takes the lead

It was a big one, but not The Big One. Coming to the checkers, McMurray had the lead and Earnhardt Jr. had talked strategy. Then not too far behind them did things start getting a little crazy. And while it was too late for Jr Nation, McMurray flew the #1 Cessna Ford to Victory Lane. Breaking a 108-race drought, McMurray became the 2nd “non-Chaser” to win this month.
