I am glad to see Jimmie win, he needed it. But talk about a lousy race, Goodyear better have a tire test before next years race.

Johnson survives tire debacle at Indianapolis

Man the tire problems were crazy that race.
I think NASCAR failed by having no COT testing at Indy prior to this race.

It was good to see Jimmie win another one! :thumbsup:

You think he could win 3 straight titles? :eek:
That hasn't been done since Cale Yarborough in 1976-1977-1978.

I wonder how long it's been since the last time that was done.
Cale Yarborough, 1976 - 1978. I would love to see Jimmie pull it off.
