Can Jimmie Johnson make it six championships in a row?
At this point, you would be foolish to bet against him.
No one thought he could win three in a row, but he did it. Four in a row was considered impossible, but Johnson pulled it off. Last year, there was absolutely no chance he could make it five in a row, and what do you know—he did it again.
Can Jimmie Johnson make it six championships in a row? Absolutely he can.
The real question is, will he make it six championships in a row? That answer, is no.
Sheer logic says that it has to end sometime. For most of the year last year, you could tell that the rest of the garage had caught up to Johnson and the No. 48 team.
In fact, for the first time in his championship run, Johnson actually trailed in the standings going into the season finale. Yet, there he was again, holding the championship trophy when it was all said and done.
It can't go on forever, though. With the competition having finally caught up, it is time for someone else to win it all. There is no doubt that Johnson is fully capable of winning his unprecedented championship in a row, but for the sake of the non-Johnson fans out there, let's just hope he doesn't.
