Jimmie Johnson and his Hendrick Motorsports team did what they do best in Sundayís OíReilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. The teamís success is built upon their ability to focus on the big picture and improve a car throughout an entire race distance. That was especially true at Texas where Johnson started 24th before coming into his own in the final segment. The team delivered him the perfect car with the track position to challenge leader Joey Logano. With fresher tires, it was no contest and Johnson cruised ahead after completing the pass for the lead. The win was Johnsonís first top-five finish of the season and just his second top-10.

Next week the Monster Energy Cup series takes a well-deserved week off before packing up the transporters and heading to Bristol Motor Speedway.
