Here are some of what he said.“Oh my God, what a dream. I’ve been waiting for the day we could get Ryan in victory lane at a big one like this. Man, it’s just awesome,” said Stewart, a two-time Brickyard 400 winner (2005 and 2007). “Ryan did an awesome job getting on the pole and an awesome job all day. He and Matt Borland (crew chief) and everyone on the Quicken Loans team executed perfectly. I’m proud of all of our guys because we had a solid day too. Our Mobil 1/Bass Pro Shops Chevy was quick.

Johnson's drive for 5 ends with bad pit stop

Jimmie Johnson had plenty of time to think about the Brickyard win that slipped away. Try, 17.2 seconds. His final pit stop was, well, the pits.

Indianapolis, IN- For most of Sunday afternoon it looked like the Brickyard 400 was Jimmie Johnson’s race to lose. He led for most of the race, had a dominant car and was easily the class of the field. Until the final pit stop where they lost the race, that is. Johnson first took the lead after a blistering fast pit stop on Lap 30. He would go on to lead three more times for a...

Johnson dominates, but can’t seal the deal in Brickyard 400

When Jimmie Johnson walked into the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Media Center for his obligatory post-race interview following the Brickyard 400, the look on his face was one of disbelief. Johnson, who already has four Brickyard triumphs, seemed set to win a fifth when a botched 17-second pit stop on Lap 133 of the 160-lap race turned what seemed like a sure victory into a second...

The Indianapolis Conundrum

  While I watched Sunday’s Crown Royal 400 from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway I was torn. On one hand the lack of passing, terrible attendance, and made for TV cautions was making me think maybe this track has no place on the Sprint Cup Series schedule.
