CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Asked about NASCAR’s revised format for deciding its Sprint Cup champion, Jimmie Johnson joked that the changes may be partly geared to slow him down.
“It’s crossed my mind, I’m not going to lie to you,” said Johnson, prompting laughter at last month’s media tour. “I don’t think NASCAR is picking on me and keeping me from winning a championship.”
