#48-Jimmie Johnson was asked about the status of his contract during his media availability on Friday at Auto Club Speedway

Johnson: "Yeah, that's a good question. We are always talking and working on the details. We don't have anything ready yet, but I'm sure we will announce before long. As you can tell, I'm not overly concerned. I feel very confident we will get something put together with Lowe's as our primary sponsor. Hendrick is my home, so I'm not worried about where that stuff will actually be executed and what point the season it will be executed, but I know it will happen soon."
