I have been a Jimmy Johnson fan since he first entered into the Nascar Busch Series and have continued to be a big Jimmy Johnson fan on into the Nascar premier series before and after he won his first Nascar Winston Cup championship.
Who knows why anybody cheers for anybody? I'm not a "Front Runner" which means some people cheer for who ever is winning. Who knows why I took a liking to Jimmy Johnson when he first made his appearance in the Nascar Busch series. I also cheered for Mark Martin.
Jimmy Johnson just matched and exceeded Dale Earnhardt on the "All Time Ranking List" but just by a few race wins. Jimmy Johnson will have to get one more championship to go ahead of Richard Petty.
