Adds CAR--NASCAR-DANICA'S LESSON
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - If Jimmie Johnson wins a sixth NASCAR championship this season, he may owe Chad Knaus a big one for the calm under pressure performance the crew chief delivered at Kansas Speedway. When Johnson brought his wrecked race car to pit road, Knaus directed the repairs needed to not only keep the car on the lead lap but allow Johnson to drive it to a ninth-place finish. By Auto Racing Writer Jenna Fryer.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Frustrated with Landon Cassill at Kansas Speedway, Danica Patrick decided to send him a message. But in spinning Cassill at Kansas Speedway, Patrick also wrecked her own car and ended her race early. She was scolded by crew chief Greg Zipadelli, who complained over the team radio "you know better than to do that.'' By Auto Racing Writer Jenna Fryer.
