As Good As It Gets

Carl Edwards and his mother might tell you that Jimmie Johnson still doesn’t have this thing sewn up. There are others who will promise that at least five guys had a prayer as recently as four races ago. And there are fully eleven who will swear on all they find holy that they were the one to beat nine races ago.   Yeah, well, each and every one of them was, is, and will forever be wrong.

    Some people will actually tell you that it's difficult to like Jimmie Johnson. Sure it's difficult -- if you're petty, jealous, and morally bankrupt like, well, some people in the world.

Even worse, he's finished among the top ...

BEST NASCAR CUP RACES IN THE 2000S

Over 350 NASCAR Sprint Cup races were held the past ten years. The total range of descriptions can be used to describe them. From total heart stopping thrillers to nap inducing parades. Some were historic, had thrilling endings, emotional stories or just meant a little more to the world. These five gave us memories to talk about for years to come. 1. Winston 500, Talladega AL Oct. 15, 2000. This race was Dale Earnhardt’s 76th and final Cup Series victory. He is known as the superspeedway ...
