For the past years, Jimmie Johnson has been around the NASCAR world as “five-time.”Now, Johnson has a new nickname.
Johnson won his sixth Sprint Cup championship in eight years Sunday night and staked his title as one of the most dominant competitors in sports history.
Johnson didn’t encounter trouble until a restart and a traffic jam behind him.
As the field got jumbled up, Johnson made contact with Matt Kenseth, damaging his fender. A caution flag gave Johnson’s crew a chance to repair any damage to his car. From there, he worked his way back.
Johnson barely got to finish his celebratory stresses before the debate started. Many argue where does so-called “Six-Pack” rank among the greats in NASCAR
“I have six, and we’ll see if I can get seven,” Johnson explained. “Time will tell. I think we need to save the argument until I hang up the helmet, then it’s worth the argument.”
Johnson through the years
Johnson was celebrating yet another milestone in his career. He already has 66 career victories ad six championships in 12 seasons.
Johnson planned to enjoy every moment of the celebration and his championship reign.
