NASCAR: Jimmie Johnson's Blueprint to Regain the Sprint Cup Championship

Don't be surprised if Jimmie Johnson repeats this scene in 2013.

History will show Jimmie Johnson as being one of the greatest drivers and champions in NASCAR.

But just because Johnson has failed to finish No. 1 the last two seasons (sixth in 2011 and third in 2012)—after winning a record five Sprint Cup championships in a row from 2006-2010—doesn't mean he will never win another Cup title again.

There's no question that at the age of 37, Johnson is nowhere near being washed up. In fact, he still remains a threat to win at any track every time he climbs behind the wheel of his No. 48 Chevrolet.

And after two seasons of coming up short in the pursuit of his sixth championship, 2013 may very well be the year Johnson makes it all the way back to the top of the heap.

It won't be easy with competition at an all-time high, not to mention the introduction of the new Generation 6 version of the Car of Tomorrow; Gen 6 for short.

Here's the blueprint or road map that Johnson must follow in building the foundation, walls and roof to a sixth championship in 2013.
