Just two more races until the NASCAR Chase Finale in Homestead. The Sprint Cup goes to Texas Motor Speedway this Sunday for the AAA Texas 500 & Hit and run driver at Martinsville is charged & Donald Trump reaches out the NASCAR audience.
FOX’s Marghiee Teshineh has this week’s “FOX in the Fast Lane”:
Jimmie Johnson goes to this weekend’s race in Texas knowing he’s going be one the Final Four racing for the championship:
(Johnson) “We’re fired up and ready to go. Very, very excited for the next couple of weeks and certainly ready to go to Homestead and race.”
Johnson says he’s not nervous about racing for the Cup, because none of the final four drivers will have an advantage over each other:
(Johnson) “We’re all at a tie, and it’s just go out there and lay down your best work. So I think that will be helpful from a stress management standpoint and thinking about what could possibly happen.”
Johnson is hoping to win a seventh championship, tying him with Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt Sr.
Virginia State Police are charging a Fairfax Virginia man with reckless driving after a crash injured 22 people in a Martinsville Speedway parking lot after last week’s race.
And Reed Sorenson’s No. 55 car will feature a “Trump/Pence 2016” paint scheme at the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.
