Chaz Talks About His Dislike of 5 Time NASCAR Champion Jimmy Johnson

Throughout my many years of being a NASCAR fan, I’ve liked and disliked many drivers. But, I don’t think I have ever disliked a driver as much as Jimmy Johnson. Here’s why.

Earlier this morning (Monday April 8th), Frank Pain and I were talking about yesterday’s Sprint Cup race, one that Johnson won – again. I was telling Pain about the different reasons that I don’t like Jimmy Johnson, and then it hit me. I don’t like him for one simple reason. Because he keeps on winning.

Johnson has won 5 NASCAR championships – in a row. Including yesterday’s win, he now has 62 wins in his career with 39 of those coming in the last 6 years alone. And, he already has 2 wins in 2013. The dude just keeps on winning.

So, why does that tick off? Well, honestly, I don’t really know. Many could say that I’m just whining because he keeps winning, and my driver (Dale Earnhardt Jr.) is just not as good as Jimmy. That is true, but I think it goes a little deeper than that.

I compare it to all of those years that the NFL’s New England Patriots won all of those Super Bowls, or how the Chicago Bulls dominated the 90′s. People get tired of the same team or person winning all the time – unless, of course, you are a fan of them.

I’m not saying that I don’t like Jimmy Johnson as a person, because he is actually a really nice dude. He wins graciously and has never been one to be a sore loser. Plus, he helps thousands of kids with the Jimmy Johnson Foundation.

I respect the guy, and think he is one of the best drivers in the history of NASCAR. But, that doesn’t mean I have to like him. As selfish as that may seem, I’m just sick and tired of hearing “Jimmy Johnson wins”.

Do you feel the same about Jimmy Johnson as I do?
