Johnson pulls away in fourth Atlanta win
HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) The season just started. The calendar hasn't even turned to spring. Yet Jimmie Johnson has all but wrapped up a shot at his record-tying seventh NASCAR Sprint Cup title.
Quickly establishing he's one of the drivers to beat - boy, does that sound familiar - Johnson pulled away after the final restart with 13 laps remaining to win Sunday at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
The six-time champion picked off drivers left and right after starting near the back in the second race of the year, having failed to get in a qualifying run because of inspection issues.
