Hendrick Motorsports driver Jimmie Johnson shredded two different left-rear tires in the first 11 laps this past weekend in the Camping World RV Sales 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Johnson has endured at least seven races marred by tire issues since the second-to-last race at Phoenix last season.
Fantasy Tip: When Johnson has solved his tire issues this season, he is obviously the man to beat at most tracks. However, fantasy owners in salary-cap leagues have been left with a bad taste in their mouth when tire issues have reared their ugly head. It seems the issues have cropped up at flat tracks more, i.e. New Hampshire, Phoenix, Pocono, for the No. 48 team. If you're in a fantasy league which limits amount of starts per driver, consider avoiding J.J. at flats.
