DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Five-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson is reshaping his views about restarts.
After two noticeable mistakes during recent restarts late in Sprint Cup races, Johnson says he plans to "lighten up and loosen up" when it comes to restarts.
Johnson says he feels "like I'm maybe a little focused on the way the rule reads exactly and paying maybe too close of attention to that."
Johnson was penalized at Dover early last month for jumping a restart. Since then, he's been critical of the pace of restarts and the interpretation of rules regarding them. He had a costly error at Kentucky last week, spinning shortly after a sluggish restart.
Now, though, he's focused less on the rules and more on how they are being enforced.
