Jimmie Johnson, #48 Lowe's Impala SS, did exactly what he set out to do at Phoenix International Raceway (PIR) Sunday – collect the maximum amount of points possible in his quest for his third consecutive NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship (NSCS). His victory, the seventh of the season for the Hendrick Motorsports driver, clinched the 32nd Manufacturers' Cup for Chevrolet in NSCS competition. "On behalf of the men and women at General Motors," said Terry Dolan, Manager, Chevy Racing.

"It is an honor for Chevrolet to clinch our 32nd NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Manufacturers' Cup title. It is a proud achievement based on a come-back run for the title given the tough competition we face every week on and off the race track. "This championship has been earned through the perseverance and dedication of Team Chevy's drivers, owners and crews with the collaboration of our GM Racing engineers. We look forward to carrying the momentum of achievement in to the 2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup season." GM Racing PR
