Jimmie Johnson thought he was on the verge of his first NASCAR Cup Series win in three years on Sunday at the Kentucky Speedway.
Restarting in third position with fresher tires than Martin Truex Jr. and Ryan Blaney who were both in the front of him. The seven-time Cup Series champion was stuck on what had become a detrimental inside line, Johnson knew he had a car worthy of beating Martin Truex Jr. and Ryan Blaney.
Brad Keselowski got a big jump on the restart from fifth behind Johnson, ducking to the inside right after the start/finish line. Blocking Johnson. Brad Keselowski had already snuck his right front bumper under Johnson’s left-rear quarter-panel.

The 44-year-old driver took to Twitter to express his obvious frustration with how the restart in front of Keselowski played out.
I thought today was our day, @DanielsCliff & the @allyracing boys brought me a great car. ?. I do look forward to my next restart behind @keselowski though.

That was uncalled for I believe so you can go below the yellow line to pass, Jimmy there is a million
On the line next race, Go get your win Jimmy.
You’ve been in that same position before JJ! Takes a man to admit he’s wrong 7 championships or not.
Jimmy you can’t bang Brad if you can’t catch him! Go retire and spend your fortune made in NASCAR and if you need help spending it, call me.
Says it all right here!
