BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) - With three victories on the season, Jimmie Johnson is safely in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, but lately the No. 48 car has had its share of problems.
The latest setback came Friday when Johnson finished 30th in qualifying at Michigan International Speedway, complaining afterward about a vibrating car.
Johnson won at MIS earlier this season - his third victory in four races at the time - but based on his recent form, a repeat isn't looking especially likely in Sunday's Cup race.
In his last five races, the six-time Cup champion has finished 42nd, 42nd, 14th, 39th and 28th.
