Jimmie Johnson

Racing Champ

Series: Heroes of Racing

By Marty Gitlin

Jimmie Johnson is one of the dominating figures in NASCAR. He became the first rookie ever to lead in the point standings (and to date the only rookie to do so). He is the only driver to finish in the top five in the standings in his first five full seasons. He has never finished below fifth in the final standings and finished second twice (in 2003 and 2004) and won the Nextel Cup championship in 2006. He will only get better as he continues to compete at the highest levels of NASCAR. Great title for reluctant readers!
