Earlier this month, the 41-year-old driver won his 83rd career race, tying him with his childhood hero Cale Yarborough for sixth on the sport's all-time victory list. "Certainly, would love to climb further up the ladder there (in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series)".

Crew chief Chad Knaus has another year on his deal, but did not announce an extension in alliance with the other players of the deal on Friday.

With seven titles and 83 victories, how much more can he win? "I told somebody earlier today that I was jealous past year watching Kyle Larson get his first win here because I was saying, 'Man, that sure would be pretty storybook if I could do something like that.' I'd love to get my first win here".

"We have a lot of momentum right now and I think we brought a good vehicle again this weekend, so it would mean a lot to me", Jones said.

"I got loose into Turn 3 and fought it for a long time and unfortunately came around", Johnson said about the spin. Johnson, Hendrick and crew chief Chad Knaus have formed one of the most successful partnerships in any sport over the past 16 years, and the relentless consistency of the No. 48 auto has stood out even more of late. I started this with him ... and I want to finish with him.

While many factors can play a role in a driver's chances of winning - including team, equipment and ability - should Johnson still win at even a 13 percent clip through the 2020 season, that would give him 17 wins and put him at 100. "I'll keep leaning on him". "Eight championships, I would love to stand alone at that". "It's hard to tell where it's going to go, but my faith is in Rick". "For me, it's really about racing".

"The backup Kobalt Chevy is pretty good", Johnson said.

"That was in play at one point in time, but we just elected to go a different route", Johnson said of the lifetime contract.

"I feel like we all evolve as individuals through our professional life, personal life and figuring out how to balance the stress of professional life, especially and then the challenges of personal life and being a father too", Johnson said.

"The.tire blew and I crashed", Allmendinger said.
