NOTES:

 

JOHNSON AND #48 TEAM CONSISTENTLY GREAT:  Jimmie Johnson’s torrid run in Chase VI continued Sunday with another podium finish at Martinsville. Since finishing 24th at Talladega in the fourth Chase race in 2006, Johnson has accomplished the following over the last 32 races: 

·         No finish worse than 15th

·         28 Top 10s out of 32 races

·         22 Top 5s

·         20 Podium Finishes

·         11 Wins

The #48 figures to hang out in the back at Talladega Sunday, and make a run to the front over the last 10 to 15 laps. A top five at Dega would encourage the Sprint Cup engravers to get to work. Johnson’s Dega finishes in the last three title runs: 24th in 2006, 2nd in 2007 and 9th in 2008. Johnson’s 118-point lead over Mark Martin is not his greater margin after six Chase races. Last year, he led by 149 at the six-race mark. The difference is, Talladega was race #4 on last year’s schedule.

 

TIME FOR MARK, J.G. TO MAKE UP GROUND:  While Jimmie Johnson may hang in the back Sunday, Mark Martin and Jeff Gordon must go for it. Given the fact the #5 and #24 are the only two within one race range of Johnson, it figures the title will be won by one of the three Hendrick teammates.
