Before you completely write my credibility off, or think I've totally gone of the deep end, hear me out. If I was betting the farm, I would take Jimmie Johnson. Luckily, there is no money on this, so I decided to go out on a limb, I mean Johnson has lose a championship at some point right?
Seriously though, he will probably find another way to win his 6th straight title, but how boring would that be. It's more fun to talk about how last season showed, he does have some weaknesses. That Denny Hamlin lost the 2010 title as much as JJ won it. And that changes in the points and the chase, could change the whole ball game.
Probably not, but third is where I voted for Jimmie, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. At least til September, then if you try to hold me to it, I'll call you a lier (unless I'm right).
