HOMESTEAD, Fla. — Jimmie Johnson’s finish of 18th in final points is the lowest Johnson has finished in any of his 18 full-time seasons in NASCAR’s premier series.
Johnson finished the season with a 13th-place finish in the Ford EcoBoost 400 Sunday (November 17) at Homestead-Miami Speedway. His previous low was 14th, last season.
Additionally, for just the third time in his career, Johnson finished outside the top-10 in final point standings.
Johnson was the lowest finishing Hendrick Motorsports driver this season — Chase Elliott was 10th, William Byron was 11th and Alex Bowman was 12th.
The seven-time Cup Series champion finished the season with one pole, zero wins, three top-five finishes and 12 top-10 finishes.
Johnson will enter 2020 with a career-long 96-race winless streak.
