NASCAR America: Jimmie Johnson’s patience propels him to victory lane in Food City 500

Leave a comment

Jimmie Johnson is known for his patience behind the wheel. Where other drivers may get too hot under the collar and over-react, Johnson is typically cool as a cucumber — and that’s helped lead him to many of his 82 career NASCAR Cup wins.

That patience once again played out in Johnson’s win Monday in the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway, only his second career triumph (and first in seven years) at the “World’s Fastest Half-Mile.”

On Monday’s NASCAR America, Greg Biffle and Kyle Petty discussed Johnson’s patience throughout Monday’s race.

After waiting out 28 straight hours of rain, Monday’s rescheduled Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway produced a rather exciting race.

The addition of adhesive to the lower grove at the track gave drivers additional grip that led to side-by-side and even three-wide racing.

On Monday’s edition of NASCAR America, NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett and Kelli Stavast discussed the top driver performances in Monday’s race.

NASCAR America’s My Home Track series continued Monday as we visited Maine, otherwise known as the Pine Tree State.

Not only is it a great state for racing, including places like Oxford Plains and Beach Ridge Motor Speedway, Maine also lays claim to NBCSN’s own Steve Letarte, who paid homage to his home state in Monday’s edition of NASCAR America.

NASCAR America: Bowyer’s determination to win fuels Stewart-Haas

Clint Bowyer‘s second place finish was his first since spring 2015 and his third since 2012.

And with the season he’s having in his first year with Stewart-Haas Racing, it’s very clear that Bowyer keeps getting closer and closer to his first Cup win since 2012.

On Monday’s NASCAR America, NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett said Bowyer has the determination and drive to lead Stewart-Haas to victory lane, perhaps as early as next Sunday at Richmond.

 

 

NASCAR America: Adhesive added to Bristol surface helped Johnson win, better racing

Leave a comment

The application of a special adhesive to allow for greater grip at the bottom of the racing surface at Bristol Motor Speedway paid off for a number of drivers in Monday’s Food City 500.

Especially a guy who knows a little bit about winning: seven-time and defending NASCAR Cup champ Jimmie Johnson, who earned his 82nd career Cup triumph at Bristol.

On Monday’s edition of NASCAR America, NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett and Kelly Stavast examined both Johnson’s win and why the adhesive was an asset not just for Johnson but for the rest of the field, as well as making things more exciting for fans with increased side-by-side racing.
