NASCAR did not have its finest weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway, where the follow-up to the Daytona 500 began with the theft of a race car and a parked SUV rolling into Denny Hamlin’s motorhome. Qualifying was a debacle for the second week in a row, rain delayed the start of Sunday’s race and Jeff Gordon once again managed to crash into a concrete wall that lacked an energy-absorbing barrier. By the time Jimmie Johnson took the checkered flag to close a cold and wet weekend, everyone was ready to get out of Atlanta. It was a momentum-killing weekend for NASCAR, which had staged a strong season-opener one week earlier only to fall flat at one of the more historic tracks on the circuit.

Kurt Busch has agreed to follow NASCAR’s recommended guidelines to be eligible for eventual reinstatement. The 2004 champion was indefinitely suspended Feb. 20 after a Delaware judge said he believed Busch likely committed an act of domestic violence against a former girlfriend and there was a ”substantial likelihood” of him doing it again. Busch lost two rounds of appeals for reinstatement before the season-opening Daytona 500 and has missed the first two races of the season. Regan Smith has replaced him in the No. 41 Chevrolet.

One by one, Jimmie Johnson picked off all the drivers ahead of him. The six-time NASCAR Sprint Cup is already taking aim at No. 7. With a performance that all but locked up his spot in the championship Chase, Johnson didn’t even wait for the calendar to flip to spring to show that he’ll be awfully tough to beat. After starting near the back of the field because he didn’t get a chance to qualify, Johnson pulled away after the final restart with 13 laps remaining to win Sunday at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Yet Jimmie Johnson has all but wrapped up a shot at his record-tying seventh NASCAR Sprint Cup title. Quickly establishing he’s one of the drivers to beat – boy, does that sound familiar – Johnson pulled away after the final restart with 13 laps remaining to win Sunday at Atlanta Motor Speedway. By the end, the No. 48 Chevrolet left no doubt it was the fastest car on the track, cruising across the finish line a comfortable 1.803 seconds ahead of one of the race favorites, defending Cup champion Kevin Harvick. It was the 71st victory of his career, and his fourth at the 1.54-mile Atlanta track.
