Jimmie Johnson wins NASCAR All-Star race for record fourth time

May 19, 2013 Full story: AutoWeek 17

Well, what will NASCAR, Sprint and Charlotte Motor Speedway come up with next? What will the best minds in racing do to slow the Jimmie Johnson-Chad Knaus juggernaut in NASCAR's annual All-Star race? What diabolical format can they conjure to give the rest of the field a shot? The answer: perhaps nothing short of locking the gate will keep the No.

About the only way to make other teams better is to rotate Chad every year. He obviously lives and dies the 48 every minute of his life.

Before falling asleep, the all star race wasn't exciting once the race started...

Would rather they run five 10 lap segments, 200k purse each, and invert the field the second and forth races..

If Jimmie is "vanilla" does that make all those other drivers that finish behind him on a regular basis sh*tty chocolate? Here's one of the things Jimmie and Chad have figured out that apparently most of the other drivers and crew chiefs haven't, you don't win the race on the first lap, you win it on the last. What's the point in racing if you're not in it to win? Maybe they like winning the war more than they do little battles.

I have but one question for you, with a great track like Winchester Speedway, what were you doing sitting at home watching a snoozer like the NASCAR all star race?

Ok, I have an answer. Dirt track racing is not my thing to watch. It never was or will be. I'm sure Winchester Speedway is an "exciting" track if you're into that (never even been). I'm into Nascar, see, & like to watch the best of the best race on pavement. Oh, yeah, I don't know what I'm missing hohum hohum. Different strokes for different folks. Know what I'm talkin' bout, Willis?

I know exactly what you are talking about, you would rather be a TV race fan than to take the time and effort to attend a real race. Today's NASCAR has evolved into more of a made for TV entertainment package than it is real racing. Lucky Dog, wave around, phantom cautions and green, white checkered are all things that were started to appeal to the TV fan who thinks that all crimes are solved in an hour, wrestling is real and all races are decided on a last lap pass. Yes, I will take my racing from the real drivers such as the WOO, Pa. Posse, Winchester racers and all of the other drivers who know how to turn the wheel right to make a left turn. Even NASCAR understands the snoozer races they hold, ergo the truck race at Eldora.

By the way, saw a great race at the 1/2 mile dirt track called Black Hills Speedway on Friday, did not look to see what channel the All Star Snoozer was on.

Oh, I take the time to go to Nascar races as well as watch them on TV. It don't get any better than the Nascar Sprint Cup. Just ask Tony Stewart former dirt track racer. Just like in anything you have to keep it interesting & worth watching. Nascar fans have their input on how they wanna see races and the Nascar committee tries to accompany those opinions & suggestions. No doubt the racing that you would rather see (WOO-HOO Posse) is real...dirt track racing. They still turn left but do it small towns & in the dirt. There is a reason why Nascar is always on TV because it has the best drivers out there racing.

BTW, how much money did that BHS winner win that Friday night? I'm guessing it wasn't nearly the amount he could've won had he been good enough to race in the Sprint Cup All-Star race.

Nascar is like singing...many of the best make it, but there are many that never get a shot on the big stage...
The best and most marketable are in sprint...

The really funny thing is that you do not know what you are talking about. In 1973 I was on the over the wall pit crew for the NASCAR rookie of the year. My car owner at SS Speedway was the first crew chief for Denny Hamlin, I could go on and on about talking to Jeff Burton for about 30 minutes at Southern National last Thanksgiving weekend when his son was racing a limited late model, we had out modified there and ran 4th place. As I have stated many times NASCAR has stopped being all about racing and has now become a made for TV entertainment show. At one time, after my stint as being on a pit crew, I would attend both Richmond races (30 miles from home), Both Martinsville races (The best show in NASCAR The World 600, The Real Southern 500 on Labor day complete with battle flags and then I would pick from Dover, Rockingham, Wilksboro or Bristol for races 7 and 8 every year.

Yes, there are several reasons that both fan attendance and TV viewership has fallen every year for the past five years, one of the biggest is the drunk idiot now in charge.

As far as the money, money is not everything, going by the money the real best drivers are in F-1, not NASCAR.

Oh, by the way, if you must sound like an idiot, at least sound like an educated idiot. NASCAR is not a word and will never be used in official way as Nascar.

In the words of Hellary "What difference does it make?...Americans are dead."
Pope Francis is the False Prophet and soon the Sunday sabbath will be the law of the land, the dollar will be worthless and World War Three will officially begin. Our only hope is Kenyan-born Obama's resignation or removal.

The real funny thing is that you brag about being on an over the hill pit crew. Even more hilarious is like you really know what it takes to "race" stock cars. You don't, pal! Oh boy Danny Hamilton & Ward Burton's brother. You really know how to pick em'. LOL In my opionion Nascar still got the best racing and don't nobody wanna talk about no F1 borefest. This is a Nascar Forum. It baffles me that after being a glorified tire changer you went on to attend some Nascar races. Amazing. Nascar has the best stock car racing & you can have fun watching the Indy 500. Oh, and reminiscing bout changing tires for the 73' ROY & expressing how you knew what racing was like back in the day.
