Johnson wins Gillette Fusion ProGlide Prelude to the Dream charity event

Four-time defending NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson led from start to finish on Wednesday night in the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Prelude to the Dream charity dirt Late Model event at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio.

“It’s been a steep learning curve, for sure, but it’s been a lot of fun to do. We tested a couple of times last year, and I think it screwed me up. I just came here cold turkey and tried to go off of my memory, and it worked.” Johnson said.   Eighteen Sprint Cup series competed in the 30-lap event that benefited four children’s hospitals; Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, Cincinnati Children’s, Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, N.C. and the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn.   Eldora Speedway’s owner and two-time Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart started 16th and finished 6th. Stewart has won the past won the past two Prelude to the Dreams races.   “We needed a long, long run and we got better and better and better as the race went on and got three or four spots just in the last couple of laps there. It was pretty cool. I would’ve liked to have had about 10 or 20 more laps. I think we could have been up there giving Jimmie a run for it.” Stewart said.   Clint Bowyer finished second, Carl Edwards third, Kyle Busch fourth and Denny Hamlin finished fifth.   Gillette Fusion ProGlide Prelude to the Dream June 9, 2010 – Eldora Speedway
