WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) - The Chase for the Sprint Cup championship looms in mid-September, and five-time champion Jimmie Johnson is gaining momentum as he seeks to regain the title he lost last year to Tony Stewart.
Heading into Sunday's Finger Lakes 355 at Watkins Glen International, Johnson has three wins, seven other top-five finishes, and has led a series-best 956 laps. He ranks fourth in points but is just eight behind leader Dale Earnhardt Jr., his garage mate at powerhouse Hendrick Motorsports.
Johnson certainly likes his results of late.
He dominated two weeks ago in winning the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis and was the car to beat a week ago at Pocono before he spun out on a restart, giving the victory in the rain-shortened race to teammate Jeff Gordon.
