DJ Pauly D is the sidekick of "The Situation" and does not find himself in a lot of the fights, as he sits back and watches them happen.
Jimmie Johnson may not have the hair to contend with Pauly's; however with the new Hendrick Motorsports shop set-up, this role fits him perfectly. With the crew chief swap at Hendrick Motorsports, it also came with Dale Earnhardt Jr. moving into the old 248 shop while Gordon moved to the old 588 shop. The move was prompted by Hendrick to help all of his drivers. This, therefore, puts Johnson and Earnhardt working side-by-side, therefore giving Johnson the perfect role. If you also add the fact that these two call each other friends, this should be a good combination.
Johnson is also known for not getting involved in many confrontations, so he takes up this role perfectly. Johnson just goes about his business and gets it done. That is the world of Pauly D as he goes to the club and gets the girls that he wants to get. In a rare time, you will see Pauly involved in a confrontation (Angelina last season), yet Johnson also found himself involved in his own confrontation with Gordon last year.
