It was the season when Jimmie Johnson claimed his seventh career NASCAR Cup Series title. The site of this historic moment was Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 20, 2016.

Johnson had to move to the rear of the field for the Ford EcoBoost 400 because of an unapproved body modification, putting him at an immediate disadvantage against fellow Championship 4 contenders Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards and Joey Logano. And throughout the race, pole-starter Kevin Harvick, Kyle Larson and Edwards proved to have the fastest cars.
