Guess Who? Jimmie Johnson Wins At Fontana Yet Again

If you’re an Anybody But Jimmie fan, the 2010 season is off to a crappy start for you.

Jimmie Johnson got incredibly lucky – there’s no two ways around that – by being on pit road at the exact time the caution came out during Sunday’s Auto Club 500, which gave him what crew chief Chad Knaus called “the break of the race.”

Johnson went on to win his 48th career Sprint Cup race, getting an early start on his fifth consecutive NASCAR championship.

“They’re really good, but they get really, really lucky,” runnerup Kevin Harvick said. “They have a golden horseshoe stuck up their ass.”

Said Johnson: “I’m not going to lie – the fact that we were on pit road gave us track position and I drove my butt off.”

The Richard Childress Racing cars of Harvick and Jeff Burton were third and fourth, followed by Johnson’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate Mark Martin and Joe Gibbs Racing’s Joey Logano.

Kurt Busch, Matt Kenseth, Clint Bowyer, Tony Stewart and Greg Biffle rounded out the top 10.

Harvick is the points leader, by 19 over Bowyer.
