Actually, make that meet your five-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion, Jimmie Johnson.
Jimmie Johnson wasn't the best all year. Not even close.
When it mattered, though, he couldn't be beat. For the fifth consecutive year.
Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick took the champion all the way to the edge this season, waging the most serious threats yet to Johnson's reign atop NASCAR. Only the outcome didn't change, and Johnson maintained his ironclad hold on the Sprint Cup. <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/rpm/nascar/cup/news/story?id=5835698">[ESPN]</a>
I'm not even remotely a NASCAR fan, but you have to give credit where credit is due and winning a championship five years running is pretty impressive.
