Allstate 400 at the Brickyard - Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Johnson Survives Tire Trouble to Win Second at the Brickyard
NASCAR’s best drivers made the best of a bad situation Sunday afternoon, pampering their cars to save tires during a series of short green flag runs at the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard Sprint Cup race. A rough track and a stubborn tire that refused to cooperate made the race at the Brickyard a survival test for 43 of the world’s best drivers. A series of NASCAR-imposed, safety-first, precautionary pit stops broke the racing into 10- or 12-lap dashes. And, in the end, defending NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson held off hard-charging Carl Edwards by a car length. Johnson, who started the race from the pole position, threw caution to the wind for the final seven laps, squeezing every ounce of speed out of his Lowe’s-sponsored, Rick Hendrick-owned Chevrolet.
