(AP) Another Michigan mishap for Jimmie Johnson.


The five-time Sprint Cup champion crashed nose first into a wall in his No. 48 Chevrolet during a practice session Saturday. Johnson was evaluated and released from the infield care center, but the accident forced his team to prepare a backup car and now he faces quite a challenge trying to win a Cup race at Michigan International Speedway for the first time.


Johnson qualified third Friday, but he'll have to start from the rear now with the backup car.


MIS is one of only five tracks on the Cup schedule where Johnson has never won. He's 0 for 23 in Cup races in the Irish Hills.
