Jimmie Johnson thought somebody had traded paint with his motorhome.

Nope, that was just the wind.

The five-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion took advantage of those gusts to grab the poll, edging defending champion Kyle Busch for the top spot at Kentucky Speedway on Friday night.

But first Johnson had a scary moment.

”I was sitting in my motorhome, watching qualifying on television and the bus started shaking real bad,” he said. ”TV was a little behind and they weren’t talking about the winds, so for a minute I thought somebody backed into us.”
