Jimmie Johnson's 48 Team Wins Sprint Pit Crew Challenge in Charlotte
Charlotte - Jimmie Johnson's No. 48 team won the NASCAR Sprint Pit Crew Challenge Thursday evening, avenging last year's loss in the finals to Denny Hamlin's No. 11 team.
Hamlin's team was the two-time defending champions coming into the event and cruised into the finals, but lost to Johnson's team by three-tenths of a second.
Johnson's six-member team changed four tires, put in gas and pushed the car 40 yards in just more than 22 seconds without a penalty. They win their choice of the top pit stall in Saturday night's All-Star race.
