Jimmie Johnson a One of a Kind Driver

Caleb FroebeContributor IAugust 3, 2008

Jimmie Johnson is one of NASCAR's greatest drivers, and one of the greatest champions. He is a one of a kind driver, one that NASCAR does not see very often.

Johnson is well respected throughout the NASCAR community. He races clean and smooth, and still can be aggressive when he needs to be. Johnson recently finished third at Pocono after the race was delayed due to rain.

When he gets hot he stays hot for a long time—that's just the kind of driver he is. He has been in a stride for about two months now, finishing in the top 10 several times including a win in the tire troubled Allstate 400 at the Brickyard in Indianapolis. The stride also includes back-to-back poles at Indy and Pocono.

As the chase nears Jimmy Spencer has said, "I think Jimmie Johnson will threepeat." In a few short months we will find out.
