Indeed you have to give Jimmy and Chad credit as it was no cake walk this year. They are a great team between driver and crew chief. Can they do 6 in a row? We will know about this time next year.

The other teams will need to have their game to complete at the level of Hendricks Teams. Watch out for the Toyota team who will be strong again. The Roush teams ended on a good note and perhaps thats a good sign for Ford. It will be an interesting off season with the various changes in teams and sponsors.

Nice chatting with you!

As a Jimmie Johnson fan, I am thrilled with his 5th title. What I don't understand is all the people that think they are cheaters and are lucky. Like somehow they backed into 5 championships. Get over it. He finished 2nd yesterday. I don't hear anyone saying Clint Bowyer didn't belong in the chase when his team was caught "cheating" (your word not mine) twice this season. Many other crew chiefs have been caught "cheating". Google that. Jimmie and Chad are probably the best crew chief/driver combo ever. Give them the props they deserve. The other competitors need to step it up and knock him off the top. BRING IT ON in 2011!!!

Aren't you glad we live in a country where we can speak our opinion? Happy Thanksgiving!
My opinion will not be popular but here goes.
Chad Knaus is proven cheater (Google it = 12 times he's been busted in his career, not just Cup). To me this is like the home run champion being exposed as a previous steroid user. You will always wonder.
Take nothing away from the 48 team, they were and have been consistant and to come out on top after 36 points events means something. Luck has a lot to do with the whole thing too.
Junior's problems go far beyond finding a crew chief. Remember who he drives for, Hendrick has how many championships? The 88 has the same equipment as the other Hendrick teams (5,24,48) who seem to do pretty well in addition to many other teams who purchase Hendrick items.
I really liked the "have at it boys" idea but the drivers are still being somewhat reserved in their actions because of the corporate sponsors who don't want their name associated with bad behaviour. Since Dupont is leaving the 24, Jeff had no problem pushing Jeff Burton (at least this time he was man enough to take his helmet off).
Harvick dumped Baby Bush and admitted doing so but also had no risk, new sponsor next year and what was NASCAR ging to do, put him on probation the rest of the year? Haha
In reflection of 2010 at least there were no deaths or life threatening injuries in the top three series.

This year was a surprising season overall. There was more completion against Jimmy Johnson who was so lucky at Homestead. There was some disappointment with teams and their sponsors as we saw a number of shakeups and teams eliminating cars. What happened to Junior? Will Rick Hendrick get a new crew chief that understands Juniors driving ability? We have time between now and Daytona to get ready for the next season.

PS- I loved the interview of Kyle Bush ( Big Baby)
