Jimmie Johnson quotes regarding Friday practice accident
Pocono Raceway

Jimmie Johnson #48 Lowe's Chevrolet
Note: Johnson crashed in Turn 1 during Friday's first practice session

WHAT HAPPENED OUT THERE? Well, I just got loose into Turn 1, spun out and tore up the race car. If there's a time to have it happen, now is the time. There's a long break before the second practice. We'll take it from there. Just trying hard and got loose. One of those deals.

IT WAS A HARD HIT. ARE YOU OKAY? Everybody's asked. It was a really soft impact from my spot, so I guess everything crushed around me like it needed to. Everything's fine.

ANY INDICATION OF A TIRE GOING DOWN? No. I knew when I turned off into the corner that I was loose and as I started cycling through the bumps it just kept coming around. At that point you just kind of drop your head and hold on.
