STILL the best? Guess I would have to have considered him the best at some other time to STILL consider him the best. He came along at a time when he didn't have much competition his own age. Not like today where there are so many young guns right around the same age. If you're the only kid in the pool, you can look like Michael Phelps.

Jeff has had championships with two different crew chiefs. He's the one with the impressive record compared to all current drivers.

I'm not saying you're wrong but Tony Stewart just might be on this list real soon.

I'm saying you're wrong. Screw Tony he wont win the championship this year. Aint got the patience. He wants to prove to the sponsors that he can be a champ again in his 1st year as a owner. It'll take patience to get that done and right now he doesn't have it. Besides Jeff Gordon is still the best in NASCAR and he's due for one.

Tony has always been a wildcard from the very begining of his nascar carreer. He will give 100 percent to win the championship this year. He has a good chance of doing it. Youre biased in your opions try keeping and open head. Dont just blowhard.

Under the old point system Jeff would be very close to tying the King and Sr. but that falls into the woulda, coulda, shoulda catagory. It's not relevant because the reality is the chase does exist. I believe that if Jeff had a crew chief more of the style of Ray Evernham that he would have already won a championship under the current point system. Steve Letartes learning curve has taken much too long and Jeff is the type driver that performs best when he has a crew chief that coachs him during the rest. Steve can't do it, he needs a coach himself. Think about it, the drivers that have been the big winners in recent years are the ones with the stand out crew chiefs.

Tony has been a crybaby since his NASCAR career began too. I agree with you he will give 110% to win the championship this year, but right now he doesn't have the patience. He will not pull it off. And if you are gonna "blowhard" learn to spell and use good grammar so I can understand what what you're blowing about.

You're right a bout that. You'd have to break up that 48 team. And I swear I cant imagine how you could steal their magic. I read this bit from an old 2006 article earlier today:
"In 2004, Johnson was 247 points out of first with six races remaining. He eventually lost the championship to Kurt Busch by just eight points."
Nuff said.
