Jimmie Johnson spins out, still on lead lap

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Five-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson got loose coming out of Turn 4 and went into the grass with just under 100 laps to go.

He was able to keep the car from hitting the wall. He drove straight to his pit box and did get across the start-finish line before the pace car to stay on the lead lap. But he did have a commitment line violation, meaning he started at the tail end of the lead lap.

Tony Stewart remains the leader with Kasey Kahne in second and Marcos Ambrose in third. Matt Kenseth is in fourth with Carl Edwards, the Chase leader, in fifth.
