It's seems like you either love him, or you hate him. But no matter how you feel about Jimmie Johnson, it's hard to deny his place in NASCAR history.
Think about this for a second, Johnson has made ever NASCAR Chase for the Championship, finished in the top 10 every season he has raced, and finished out of the top five only once. That's pretty dominate.
After winning five straight titles, Johnson has finished third and then fifth in the points. But seriously, it's hard to believe you can keep a great driver down. He seems more motivated than ever in 2013.
"It's hard to say that anything can motivate me more than what goes on in my own head to try and win another," said Johnson. "Not winning championships or winning them. I've just always had this desire to compete, to do the best that I can. Its just this fire that has been there forever. So, losing these past two years hasn't changed that any."
