INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Jimmie Johnson made one thing perfectly clear when he walked out of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s infield medical center.

He might be out of the playoffs but his season is not over.

“I think everybody can see the performance is on its way up,” Johnson said Sunday after a late crash ended his last-ditch hope of making the 16-car field. “Just keep drilling that and trying to get ourselves higher in points and then also back to victory lane.”
