2014 Charlotte (Coca Cola 600): Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Recap
Posted by: ASkyler on May 26, 2014 - 07:10 AM
2014 Charlotte (Coca Cola 600): Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Recap

With just eight laps remaining in the Coca-Cola 600, six-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson moved to the front of the field for the final time in the 400-lap race at Charlotte Motor Speedway (CMS). Johnson captured his first victory of the 2014 season in his No. 48 Lowe’s Patriotic Chevrolet SS snapping a 12-race winless streak. Throughout the lengthy endurance race, Johnson led 10 times for a total of 164 laps.

The win marked Johnson’s 67th NASCAR Sprint Cup career victory; his seventh win at Charlotte and fourth Coca-Cola 600 trophy. Also of note this is the third time Johnson has won from the pole at the 1.5-mile track. This win also broke the tie with NASCAR Hall of Famers Bobby Allison and Darrell Waltrip and Johnson is now the all-time series points-paying win leader at CMS. The 38-year old Cup Series veteran took team owner Rick Hendrick to Victory Lane in the prestigious Coca-Cola 600 for the 11th time.

Kevin Harvick, who has collected wins at Phoenix and Darlington thus far this season, brought his No. 4 Budweiser Folds of Honor Chevrolet SS home in second place, giving Chevrolet a one-two finish.

Last week’s million-dollar Sprint All-Star race winner, Jamie McMurray, also had a strong No. 1 Cessna Chevrolet SS and finished in fifth-place. Johnson’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jeff Gordon overcame back spasm challenges running a strong race in his No. 24 Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet SS and was able to finish seventh overall.

Gordon continues to lead the current standings and holds an 11-point advantage over second place. Paul Menard finished eighth in the No. 27 Serta/Menards Chevy SS, his sixth top-10 finish of 2014, to put five Chevrolet SSs in the top 10 finishing order.

Matt Kenseth (Toyota) was third and Carl Edwards (Ford) was fourth to round out the top five finishing order.

The Sprint Cup Series travels to Dover International Speedway in Dover, DE to compete on June 1.
