Advantage: Jimmie Johnson

In a perfect world, every chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship would go down like it did in 2011. Tony Stewart and Carl Edwards were tied, with the advantage going to Smoke, because he had more wins. Who could argue that? Alas, it's not a perfect world, and the five-time champion Jimmie Johnson- whom some would liken to Darth Vader- has thundered past Matt Kenseth took the points lead, albeit by a razor thin margin of four, and appears also to have an advantage down the home stretch. ...

NASCAR’s Answer To Hank Aaron

"As far as I'm concerned, (Hank) Aaron is the best ball player of my era. He is to baseball of the last 15 years what Joe DiMaggio was before him. He's never received the credit he's due." - Mickey Mantle in Baseball Digest (June 1970) Sometimes greatness is achieved not by doing one spectacular deed, but by doing several things well over an extended period of time.

It wasn’t too many years ago, Kyle Busch was reeling off wins, smashing guitar trophies, talking smack to Dale Jr., and making friends and enemies in equal numbers.
