(AP) Five-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson has denied any wrongdoing in the controversial Chase-deciding race at Richmond International Raceway.


Johnson defended himself one day after Clint Bowyer alleged his race-altering spin at Richmond was no different than when a Johnson mishap brought out a caution earlier in the race.


Johnson, speaking at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Wednesday, said "Clint brought it up from what I've been able to see and read. I think he was just having a bad day. And as things kept piling on, he just tried to suck someone else into the mix with him."


Bowyer's spin aided the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship chances for Michael Waltrip Racing teammate Martin Truex Jr., although NASCAR on Monday replaced Truex in the 12-driver field with Ryan Newman.
