On this day in history, Hendrick Motorsports driver Jimmie Johnson posted his 81st NASCAR Cup Series career win at Texas Motor Speedway. Johnson started 24th and worked his way to the front. He wasn’t a factor till late in the race when he took the lead from Joey Logano with 17 to go and won. In total Johnson has 83 career NASCAR Cup Series wins, which is tied with NASCAR Hall of Famer Cale Yarborough for sixth on the all-time wins list.
