jimmiejohnsonphoneix

Jimmie Johnson won his sixth NASCAR Sprint Cup Series title. Johnson’s status as 2013 series champion was never in doubt this weekend as the driver of the No. 48 Chevrolet took it easy and coasted to a ninth place finish. Johnson simply needed to finish 23rd in order to win the title.

Matt Kenseth finished second in the Ford EcoBoost 400 to teammate Denny Hamlin. Kenseth was also a distant second in the title chase entering the 1.5-mile oval Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Kenseth did his best winning the pole and setting the pace in practice but in the end Johnson won it all again.
