DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Five-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson is reshaping his views about restarts.
After two noticeable mistakes during recent restarts late in Sprint Cup races, Johnson says he plans to ``lighten up and loosen up'' when it comes to restarts.
Johnson says he feels ``like I'm maybe a little focused on the way the rule reads exactly and paying maybe too close of attention to that.''
Johnson was penalized at Dover early last month for jumping a restart. Since then, he's been critical of the pace of restarts and the interpretation of rules regarding them. He had a costly error at Kentucky last week, spinning shortly after a sluggish restart.
Now, though, he's focused less on the rules and more on how they are being enforced.
