Johnson will be piloting brand new chassis No. 610 in Saturday night's event.

Backup chassis No. 553 was driven to Victory Lane by Johnson at Auto Club Speedway in February.

YOU WON SONOMA AND BRISTOL, IS IT SAFE TO SAY CHICAGO IS NEXT ON YOUR LIST? "Yeah, Chicago is. Chad (Knaus) has asked me since I won in California for my first race if we could win in his home state so he could experience that. And we have been very, very close. I gave one up to Kyle (Busch) on a restart a couple of years ago. Last year we led a ton of laps but just didn't close at the end. Things got away from us. So I feel we've got a good chance there and certainly hope to. It's nice to cross off these tracks; tracks I haven't won at. I'd love to try to beat Jeff (Gordon) at something and I know he's sitting there waiting for one. If I could hurry up and get a couple more out of the way it would be awesome."
