Race History

Hendrick Motorsports chassis #48-590 was raced six times by 7-time NASCAR Champion Jimmie Johnson, including in the 2010 season, when he captured his record fifth consecutive championship title.

The first time the car appeared on the circuit was at Martinsville early in 2010, where the Lowe’s car started third and finished ninth. Jimmie ran the car one more time in 2010 – at the fall race at Richmond where he qualified 11th and finished third.

48-590 was rolled back out in 2011 painted in Kobalt colors and raced at Phoenix, where Johnson battled from 28th all the way to third when the checkered flag fell. Next came Richmond in April, where Johnson, back in Lowe’s blue, qualified all the way back in 30th and ended the night in eighth. Loudon in July saw the No. 48 team qualify 28th, then claw their way to finish fifth.

Finally, it was back to Richmond for the last time. The Lowe’s Impala adorned a throwback to the fan-favorite 2003 Power of Pride scheme in remembrance of the tenth anniversary of September 11th. Johnson equaled the chassis’ best starting position with a third, led 38 laps, and wound up 31st after a difficult last outing – the only time chassis 48-590 finished outside of the top-ten.
