Jimmy Johnson is the best driver in NASCAR--now. Richard Petty dominated during the 1960s and 70s; Dale Earnhardt intimidated throughout the 1980s and 90s. Now Jimmie Johnson is dominating. He has won 5 championships in a row. He is Mr. Consistency--he usually finishes in the top 5 or top 10, if he doesn't win the race. Even Jeff Gordon doesn't compare. Look for Jimmie to continue his winning ways. He may win his sixth and seventh championships soon. He may be the best ever. Can he win 8? We can only wait and see.
