Drivers not panicking near NASCAR's halfway point

Jimmie Johnson knows the panic to make Sprint Cup's championship chase is coming.
CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Jimmie Johnson knows the panic to make Sprint Cup's championship chase is coming.
   
The defending Sprint Cup champion is among those drivers yet to win a race this season, the first since NASCAR expanded its 10-race playoffs to 16 cars and put enhanced emphasis on race wins over the consistency of point standings.
   
Nine drivers have won the first 11 races, with Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano the two-time winners. And each new winner has gleefully talked of locking up a spot to race for a title.
   
The next chance for victory comes Sunday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway at NASCAR's longest race, the Coca Cola 600. Johnson believes there's plenty of time left to earn your way into the playoffs.
