OTHER STORIES ON THE DAY

-It actually looked like Jimmie Johnson had command of the championship on fuel strategy needing only 1 pitstop to finish the race when Brad needed 2. Then the 48 pit crew dropped a lug nut and a few laps later, the 48 went to the garage with rear end gear problems.

-Your 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion is the driver of the #2 Penske Racing Dodge, Brad Keselowski.

It’s the first Cup Championship in 23 full time seasons, for Penske Racing, and last race for Dodge as they leave the sport.
