Watch: Jimmie Johnson loses car in Watkins Glen practice, somehow makes great save
Johnson spun his car in Turn 1 at Watkins Glen and appeared headed for a hard crash, but he somehow saved his car.
Jimmie Johnson spun wildly out of control Saturday in a practice session at Watkins Glen, but made a great save to avoid destroying his car.
Johnson wheel-hopped his Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet in Turn 1 during the first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup practice. Johnson's car spun around at a high rate of speed, but you could see the tires smoking as he stayed in the gas trying to avoid impact with the tire barrier.
