CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- Jimmie Johnson became the first four-time winner of NASCAR's annual All-Star race Saturday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Johnson got a fast final pit stop from his Hendrick Motorsports crew to restart the race in second for the 10-lap sprint to the finish.
He battled teammate Kasey Kahne for a little more than one lap before clearing Kahne and sailing away to the $1 million payday.
Johnson entered the race tied with the late Dale Earnhardt and Jeff Gordon as the only three-time winners in event history.
Now the five-time NASCAR champion is in a class of his own.
