Want to know even more about Jimmie Johnson and Team 48? See what journalists from around the country are saying about Team Lowe's Racing.
Jimmie Johnson is heading to Darlington Raceway this weekend looking to turn around his poor luck from last weekend at Talladega. "The Track Too Tough To Tame" has proved to be just that in his last two visits, finishing 15th in 2011 and 36th in 2010. Johnson and Team 48 hope to live up to the "Never Stop Improving" slogan this weekend and return to their Top 10 ways of 2012.
When asked what he thought it would take to get to Victory Lane on Saturday, Johnson responded: “On the old track, when it was worn out and ugly, nasty to drive, we were great there. Since they have repaved it, it’s been a bit of a challenge. It’s just so tough to pass there. I think your race strategy, fuel strategy, tire strategy is really more important than speed in the car. So hopefully we play that game right and put ourselves in a great position at the end of the race to win.”
