It’s been a lone time for Jimmie Johnson to start a race from the pole position, actually the last time was 2016 at Loudon NH (New Hampshire Motor Speedway) but come Sunday Johnson and Hendrick teammate Alex Bowman will lead the field to green for the O”Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. Johnson has been in victory lane seven times at the 1.5-mile track. Johnson top qualifying speed was 189.747 mph.

“It’s been a long couple of years, and we still have a ways to go and certainly race day’s more more important than Friday,” Johnson said, “but we’re working so hard, and I think we’re a bit guilty of trying too hard and maybe stepping outside of our comfort zone at times and putting set-ups under the car that just quite aren’t proven yet.
