Jimmie Johnson,passed Joey Logano for the lead with 17 laps to go and took the checkered flag on a newly repaved and reconfiguration 1.5-mile track.
This is Johnson first win of the season and his record seventh at TMS. Johnson and his No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet led only the final 17 laps, in the end that was all that mattered.
Johnson said, “I guess I remembered how to drive, and I guess this team remembered how to do it. I’m just real proud of this team. What a tough track, tough conditions. But it’s really in our wheelhouse and we were just able to execute all day.”
Kyle Larson finished second for the fourth time this season, with Logano, Kevin Harvick and Dale Earnhardt Jr. rounding out the top five.
Kyle Larson said, “I wish I could have gotten by Joey for second a couple of laps sooner, and then I think I could have had a shot at Jimmie at the end, I was really, really good through Turns 3 and 4 there at the end, and thought I learned some things where I could pass some people coming off of Turn 2.”
