Jimmie Johnson Wins His Fourth Brickyard 400 [VIDEO]

Sometimes drivers are so far out in front of a race observers say he’s in another zip code.  Following yesterday’s Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis second-place Kyle Busch said Jimmy Johnson was in another country.  Johnson dominated the field leading 250 of the 400 miles with a winning margin of nearly five seconds.  And with the victory he  joined Jeff Gordon as the only NASCAR drivers to win four times at the fabled track.  The only other drivers to win a race of any type at Indy are Al Unser, A-J Foyt and Rick Mears in the Indy 500.  Johnson’s victory was also his third this season to put him in good shape for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.

Following Kyle Busch, it was Greg Biffle, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Jeff Gordon to complete the Top-5.

A tough day for Carl Edwards.  He started on the outside of the front row but on Lap 12 Edwards lost power and was forced to make an early pit stop.  By the time his crew figured things out he was well back of the pack and finished 29th, four laps back.

And bad luck for Matt Kenseth.  The points leader going into the race got caught in the wrong place at the wrong time and couldn’t avoid colliding with Joey Logano when Logano lost control.  It put Kenseth out of the race.  He ended up 35th, his worst finish of the season.  As a result, Dale Earnardt, Junior takes over the points lead, 14 points up on Kenseth.

Six races left before the Chase.  It’s back to Pocono next week.
