Jimmie Johnson looks for a win in Hampton, Ga. for the second year in a row and the fourth time in his career as the NASCAR Sprint Cup season moves to the Atlanta Motor Speedway for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 on Sunday afternoon.

Johnson finished a disappointing 16th place in the season-opening Daytona 500 last Sunday in Florida, but is a three-time champion of the QuikTrip 500, including a win in 2015, one of five victories on the season for the six-time Sprint Cup champion.

Johnson will start in 19th position on Sunday.

Kurt Busch, who won the QuikTrip 500 all the way back in 2002, has the pole position for Sunday's race.

Fox begins pre-race coverage with Fox NASCAR Sunday, with host Chris Myers alongside analysts Darrell Waltrip, Jeff Gordon and Michael Waltrip. Full race coverage starts at 1 p.m., with play-by-play man Mike Joy with Darrell Waltrip and Gordon in the booth, plus reports from Larry McReynolds, Jamie Little, Vince Welch and Matt Yocum.

Online coverage both before and during the race can be seen using Fox Sports Go. The race will be rebroadcast on television Monday at 8 a.m. on Fox Sports 1.
