Ken de la Bastide: Johnson continues stellar season

(Continued)

Gibbs Racing has five wins, three by Kenseth and two by Kyle Busch. It is followed by Hendrick Motorsports with four, three by Johnson and one by Kasey Kahne. Childress Racing is next, with Kevin Harvick recording two victories.

The IZOD IndyCar series heads to the famed Milwaukee Mile this weekend, and it should produce the best racing of the weekend. The "Mile" is known for tight racing, and with IndyCar producing new winners on almost a weekly basis it should be an interesting show on Saturday.

Penske driver Helio Castroneves is looking for his first IndyCar championship and has a 22-point lead over Marco Andretti after his fourth career win in Texas.

Since neither Dario Franchitti or Scott Dixon have won in 2013 for the Target/Ganassi team, I suspect one of these two drivers will be pulling into victory lane.
