Now That It's Over, 100 Words On Jimmie Johnson
No blaming the rules. No complaining that the cars are too easy (or hard) to drive. No
bitching that it’s too tough to pass. No blaming his manufacturer, team or problems
on pit road. No whining that William Byron and Kurt Busch were “racing too
hard.” No snapping at reporters. No pouting, sulking, or one-word answers. No air of entitlement. No insistence that it was a bad race because he
didn’t win. Not every king wears a crown. Not every champion wins a trophy. Today more than ever, Jimmie Johnson is a champion, in every sense of the word.
