Jimmie Johnson takes the asphalt

It was the fourth win this season and the 22nd career for Johnson, who joined Dale Jarrett as the only drivers in NASCAR history to win both the Daytona 500 and the Allstate 400 in the same season.
There was an incident where Johnson dropped to 39th place, and then patiently weaved his way up throughout heavy traffic after a tricky restart late in the race to claim a breakthrough victory at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Johnson, current leader in the Nextel Cup standings, was placed outside the top 15 in each of his last three starts, but due to an exceptional run Sunday, Johnson now owns a 107-point lead over Matt Kenseth.
