There's an aura about Bristol Motor Speedway, a track that drivers and fans love equally for its electric, throwback-style racing.
Jimmie Johnson never chalked it up as one of his favorites.
The four-time defending NASCAR champion could never get a handle on the .533-mile bullring, where he struggled far more than he ever succeeded.
Until Sunday, that is.
Johnson finally knocked Bristol off his to-do list, plowing from sixth to first in just three laps Sunday to grab his first career victory at the revered Tennessee track.
