Jimmie Johnson joined some elite company after his win on Sunday.
FOX's Matt Napolitano reports:
Jimmie Johnson's fifth win of the season earned him his seventh career Sprint Cup.
The No. 48 Lowe's Chevy taking the checkered flag in Sunday's Ford Eco-Boost 400 to clinch the cup, tying Johnson for the most of all time with Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt.
Johnson was emotional after his seventh career Sprint Cup and received a strong salutation from his longtime crew chief Chad Knaus:
(Knaus) "Jimmie Johnson, man I am so proud of you, so proud of you. You're a good man, you're a great champion. Now you're seven-time champion brother."
