Johnson Takes Home Championship After Wild Day In Miami
Jimmie Johnson was at the right place at the right time Sunday, and took home his 7th Sprint Cup Championship. Johnson, who came in as the number one seed, survived a late race accident that took out Chase contender, Carl Edwards.With just nine laps to go, it looked as if Edwards would cruise to his first title, but Edwards was taken out of the race, after being involved in an accident with Joey Logano. After a 30 plus minute delay, the race resumed and Logano had the lead, but a final caution flag led to Johnson taking the checkered flag. The seven time champ is now tied with Dale Earnhardt and Richard Pretty for the most in NASCAR history.
