DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. —
“A lot is said about guys that lag back like that, but we’re in the most competitive series in the country, and when you’re running in the most competitive series in the country, you have to do what you think is in the best interest of you, your car, your team and your situation to get to the end. And part of winning races is knowing to be where at what times.”
Johnson seems to have that feel as well as anyone in 2013.
The Sprint Cup points leader won his fourth race of the season and etched his name in the Daytona record books.
“That’s amazing, gosh,” Johnson said. “To tie anything that Bobby did is really special.”
