Johnson's Qualifying Time For All Star Race Disallowed
Jimmie Johnson’s qualifying time for the All Star race was disallowed because he pitted outside of the box.
When Johnson brought the No. 48 Kobalt Tools/Lowes Chevy to pit road for the mandatory pit stop that is part of All Star qualifying, at least one of the front lugnuts fell off.
Johnson started to leave, but then stopped so the front tire changer could pick the lugnuts up off the ground and put them on the car. But, Johnson was outside of the box, as he already started to leave.
