Take some rope, and tie a few cinder blocks to the rear wing of his No. 48 car. That ought to throw off the balance a little.

Jimmie indeed does put his foot down better because he drives with the throttle which is closer to the fastest physical limits of a car, than is turning with the steering only.

If you turn with the front end, you're limiting your acceleration on exit. If your rear is too loose, it won't grab to push the car forward, again - losing acceleration on exit. But there's a way they can adjust a car so when you accelerate, the rear grip assists in steering the car left which doesn't suffer as much loss as it would normally.

Anyone know how they do this and wish to explain?

Actually shuffling the track order should do it. If he mastered the tracks they run during the chase, its time to swap those out and put in some alternates. And then they'll have a 50-50 chance of him not outperforming them. On the other hand, Chad mastered the art of learning how to win, and if you know how to learn, that makes you twice as good as somebody who knows.

The only way to catch him is to kill him first. Then after two or three races maybe someone will finally take over 1st in Points. Haha ;)

Abd alpinedigital, although that's a fairly good idea, the problem is: he's pretty much good at all tracks. Granted, maybe throwing in some road tracks or maybe Bristol or Daytona in the Chase might work...for a little while.

They've got the 48 right where they want it and they won't ever change it. Hate to admit it, but the other drivers truly do need to step it up and find their niche just like he did. It's the only way. Other than that, for now it'll stay Jimmie-verse in NASCAR.

True. Pretty much anyone can do it.

Actually, a lot of Chasers [with hitmen] complain about him winning or don't like, yet they do nothing with the power they hold. I'm sure throwing a few thousand their way could easily get Johnson thrown into the wall. I'm a little surprised Newman hasn't oh so coincidentally hit him yet.

Juan could catch him at Indianapolis... if he slowed down.
