Lowe's Staying With Jimmie Johnson, Will Sponsor All Sprint Cup Races Through '15

VICTORY LAP: The AP's Schuyler Dixon noted Johnson landed in the Dallas area on Tuesday night before "hopping a plane" to Las Vegas, and is expected to visit L.A. today. Johnson said, "I think that NASCAR has worked very hard to get us in major markets, and people want to see us. They want to see the winner, want to talk to the winner. I think there's more interest today than what I personally had and what our sport had in 2006." Dixon wrote Johnson's extension with Lowe's is "an important early-season development in what was otherwise shaping up as a contract year, something drivers always hope to avoid." Johnson: "The stability is the key. To know that that's done and literally the season's starting, we don't have to worry about that as a lot of teams do, field those questions and concerns. Honestly, it's a great honor" (AP, 2/27). Chevrolet today ran a full-page ad in USA Today congratulating Johnson on his Daytona 500 win (THE DAILY).
