NASCAR <3's Jimmie Johnson

Post by Burn on Wed Jun 23, 2010 10:48 am

Since I can remember, about 75% of all races that Jimmie Johnson is eligible to win, something happens that increases his chances. There have been two cases this year:

-Denny Hamlin is leading by about 10 seconds, though everyone seems to believe that NASCAR called a "mystery" debris caution because of the deficit, I think NASCAR also put into prespective that Jimmie Johnson was running 7th at the time and all drivers from 2nd-7th were running very close together.

-Marcos Ambrose turns off his engine to conserve fuel (he had the most fuel out of all drivers 1st-5th if I can recall). Jimmie Johnson is running 2nd and cannot seem to gain any ground on Ambrose. Did NASCAR have anything to do with Ambrose's engine "mistake"? I think they might've.

Now here's the question, do you believe in the Jimmie Johnson caution?

Michigan wasn't about Jimmie Johnson, it probably was to bunch up the field for entertainment value since Hamlin was stealing the show. Unfortunately Michigan was probably the most boring race of the year and NASCAR did what they could. You notice the formation of the Top 5 coming to the checkers? It was almost perfectly spaced several car lengths apart from each other. Its like 1st was that much better than 2nd as 2nd was to 3rd and so on. It couldn't be helped, Hamlin had the best car.

You know it sounds fishy when the leader bashes NASCAR and the second place guy says he saw debris, "a huge piece of debris" for that matter.

Remember the Chase race in California last year? It happened then too when Jimmie Johnson was stealing the show. I believe it 100% that NASCAR throws cautions to heighten excitement and TV ratings when things get too cut-and-dry but its not necessarily 'beneficial' to Johnson.

I do not think they like Johnson per say but I agree with Burnout about the T.V. ratings and such.
