I would like to see Johnson race a full year without Chad Knaus around-if he still wins then so be it-he's talented and I can respect that. I just don't know about anybody who has a crew chef who has been suspended over and over again for cheating. Is it talent, or is it cheating. I would think that all of Johnson's fans would want that too-then it would shut up people like me who actually question the talent.

OOOOOOO! Jealousy rears its ugly head. You people make me laugh. If its not your driver winning the uglieness comes out. Chad might set the cars up but its the guy on the track who has to bring it home. haha.

the last decade in NA$CRAP is driven the "sport" into the ground. It couldn't be more boring and Johnson is a boring as they. LIstening to an interview with Johnson is like watching paint dry...which is about as exciting as watching another boring race.

DABs really loves Jimmie. She has a cut out of him in her bed. She has 48's all over her house. But we aren't suppose to know that.

You are a funny one! You never fail to make me laugh. The best excuse you come up with is jealousy! Knaus earned his reputation for cheating and had to pay the consequences. Funny how once he got his hands slapped and realized they meant business he's been a good boy.
Johnson is nothing without Knaus. Put Knaus with any driver and he can make them champ. But poor ole Jimmie can't be champ without him.
And how do you know Jimmie can't win without Chad? When Chad was suspended Jimmie won with Darian Grubb. Sooo if you can't back up your statement it would be better to keep your mouth shut.

Well you know that's not necessarily true. You could have the bestest dude in the world driving that car, but if the crew makes a wrong adjustment or a bad one he can't bring it home. Talent is only part of it.

I'm glad he won a championship where Chad wasn't suspended. My belief has always been that Jimmie's good enough to win without pushing the envelop. He doesn't need that. Let his talent shine through.

Now, him going for a fourth in a row, I'm not sure if that's the reason people aren't watching, but if it is, then I guess they don't like superior performance.

Chad is good at his job too, it's something I've noticed Darian picked up from him. He's a closer. He gets that car right when it matters. Darian does the same.

Personally I want Tony to win the championship and I think Jimmie and Mark really are the biggest competition he has.

Do you always respond to others comments in such a dumbass way? You must be one of those Always on Line Idiots. Though I see you subconsciously confirmed that you think Knaus/Johnson cheat.
I do not believe in cheating and I do not want or expect Tony to cheat. My driver is good enough to win without cheating. I am proud that he has two clean championships.

keep telling yourself what you need to, to be a loyal fan.

if crew chiefs are what make a driver a winner, why do crew chiefs go from one driver who is nothing and their new driver takes off and wins multiple races.

mark martin and his crew chief are great examples!

Maybe the crew chief has to be in love with their driver. Yeah that has to be it. Allen is in love with Mark.
