Johnson Rallies Late To Win at New Hampshire, His Third Career NHMS Win

Associated Press

LOUDON, N.H. -- Jimmie Johnson surged past Kurt Busch with three laps left to win the Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Busch grabbed the lead Sunday with about seven laps left when he nudged Johnson out of the way. Johnson and Busch quickly got side-by-side to energize what had been a lackluster race.

The four-time defending champion pulled away to win his second consecutive race after taking the checkered flag last week on the road course at Infineon Raceway.

Tony Stewart finished second and Busch was third. Jeff Gordon was fourth.

Johnson put a little bump on Busch to move him up the track, allowing the No. 48 to slip underneath and win for the fifth time this season.

I'm thinking Dale Jr might pull off his first win in two years. McMurray is going to be hard to beat, as will Harvick, and the Busch brothers.

I love this Daytona race every year.

It's been a long long time since Jr won a points race on a plate track... well, anywhere really.

He can thank Sorenson and Burton for taking out enough cars for him to finish 8th at Loudon.

thanks E, yes, much better. For your trip, I would recommend the historic ones beginning with Darlington and Charlotte.

That's funny Gene, Jr did need lots of help.

We have reduced ourselves into saying Jr is having a good run without even getting a top-5.
