Dover, Del. • Jimmie Johnson busted the definition of a minor slump at Charlotte.

His 0 for 11 start left some wondering when Johnson would take a checkered flag.

The six-time champ can check that off the list after winning the Coca-Cola 600. Now, it's off to Dover International Speedway where Johnson is the heavy favorite Sunday to start a winning streak — and add to his resume as the track's greatest driver.



"We are coming to my favorite racetrack," Johnson said, "and by the stats, probably our best track as well."

When Johnson held off teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. down the stretch in September, he zipped his way into the Dover record book with his eighth win. Johnson had shared the mark of seven wins on the concrete mile with Bobby Allison and Richard Petty. He swept Dover in 2002 and 2009 and won races in 2005, 2010 and 2012. He needed only 24 starts to win eight — Petty needed 46 races to win seven times and Allison had 35 races.

Johnson said he was humbled by holding a place in history with NASCAR Hall of Famers. —
