Jimmie Johnson had his best race of the 2020 season. He had a chance to snap his 100-plus race winless streak.
However, it is all for not, as he will no longer have that result. Johnson finished second at the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Following the race, his car failed post-race inspection. He has been disqualified.
NASCAR Cup Series Director Jay Fabian said that Johnson’s car failed due a rear alignment. However, he would not go further into details.
“Disappointed about our post-race OSS,” Johnson’s crew chief Cliff Daniels said in a tweet. “We think something must’ve broken but won’t know until we get it back to the shop [on Monday] and can diagnose. Tough news after a strong night. This team is getting stronger; we are focused forward. We’ll be back Wednesday with another great car.”
Johnson will now be the 40th place finisher in the race. In addition, he will not receive the points that he earned throughout the race with the second place finish before being disqualification.
Now, Chase Elliott has moved from third to second place. And Ryan Blaney moves from fourth to third in the final results for this race.
