“In the wall,” Johnson radioed. “It’s bad.”

Johnson ignited the fourth caution after leading 43 of 75 laps. After initial repairs, Johnson took a lap and reported the “steering wheel is kind of sticky” and he had developed a push.

Johnson held the best average finish at Pocono Raceway – 8.7 – with three wins on the 2.5-mile track and was going for the sweep on Sunday.
