Jimmie Johnson has taken the checkered flag on three occasions so far in 2017, but lately, he’s been struggling to last long enough even to see the checkered.
Johnson hit the wall hard during Sunday’s Overton’s 400 at Pocono Raceway after making contact with fellow Hendrick Motorsports driver, Kasey Kahne. It marks the third time in the last four Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races that Johnson’s day has ended early as the result of a crash.
Although the No. 5 made contact with the No. 48 to cause the accident, Johnson wasn’t mad at Kahne. He told NBC Sports it was “just hard racing” once he was released from the infield care center.
