Auto Club 500 in-race report: Johnson leads at midway point

February 21, 2010 |  2:15 pm

Jimmie Johnson has the lead on lap 125 of the Auto Club 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana.

It looks like another Fontana victory parade for Johnson. If he wins, he will surpass Jeff Gordon's four Cup wins at Fontana.

Mark Martin is in second. The veteran driver's best line of the day: "The car doesn't know how old I am."

Greg Biffle is in third. Roush Fenway Racing drivers have won five straight spring Cup races at Fontana.

Brian Vickers in fourth. He has the best-running Toyota in the field.

Tony Stewart is fifth. Maybe he has a few tricks up his fenders before this one is over.
