‘‘I’m relaxed, but not in a good way,’’ he admitted. ‘‘I’d much rather be fighting for a championship, everyone can agree with that.’’

Instead, it’s Johnson, again, in the mix.

The five-time champion leads Matt Kenseth by 7 points — the same margin Johnson held over Keselowski at this stage last season — heading into the Sunday’s penultimate race, Advocare 500, at Phoenix.
