NOTES:

 

JIMMIE VS. JEFF:  Clearly, Jimmie Johnson has been the dominant driver in NASCAR over the last eight years, but how does he compare to Jeff Gordon’s first eight years?

Jeff                 Jimmie

Races                         256                  288                       

Wins                            52                    47

Led Series in Wins   5                      2

Top 5s                                    129                  117

Top 10s                      166                  178

Championships         3                      4

Runnerup                  1                      2

 

Jeff gets the nod in total wins over 32 fewer races and leading the series five straight times in wins, and Jimmie gets the nod for one more championship, and winning four in a row. Conclusion? Jeff was better running for the checkers and Jimmie was better running for points and performing in the clutch. Johnson can certainly finish with more championships than Gordon (with one more), but must get 36 more wins than JG the rest of his career to better him in career wins.

 

 

BIGGEST CHASE THREAT IN 2010? HAMLIN.  Denny Hamlin projects as a strong contender in next year’s Chase after getting an emphatic win in the Homestead finale. In fact, Hamlin had a deceptively strong ’09 Chase, weighted down by four bad finishes. Using a tie-breaker system of podium finishes, Denny would have finished second:
