Jimmie Johnson Goes Out For Nice 180 MPH Drive To Clear His Head

CHARLOTTE, NC—Saying he was "still stressed out" from the tension of winning his fifth consecutive Sprint Cup, Hendrick Motorsports driver Jimmie Johnson unwound Tuesday by taking his No. 48 Lowe's Chevrolet for a leisurely 180 mph drive through the North Carolina countryside.

Johnson returned two hours later, having only stopped outside of Atlanta for 9.6 seconds to get gas.
