Jimmie Johnson looks like he could be claiming another season championship this weekend with just one race remaining Sunday at Miami Speedway.

Johnson could also seal his place among NASCAR’s legends with a good outing Sunday — coming in 23rd or better — tying the 6 NASCAR championship wins each of drivers Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt Sr.

Johnson leads Matt Kenseth in the championship race by 23 points. The winner of last week’s race in Phoenix, Kevin Harvick, trails Johnson by 34 points.
