Nascar Tickets – Jj Sets The Bar For 2010 Sprint Cup Season

Jimmie Johnson has become known in the racing realm as NASCAR’s Tiger Woods – minus Woods’ reputation for extracurricular activities, of course. Proving his dominance in stock car racing is absolutely no fluke, JJ came back strong in the second and third races of the Sprint Cup Series schedule in late February after a disappointing rear axle problem left him down and out of the Daytona 500 to kick off the 2010 season.

Posting back-to-back wins Feb. 21 at Fontana and Feb. 28 at Las Vegas, Johnson proved to be on top of his game as he cruised into Victory Lane, making No. 48 the car to track down once again this season in the Cup Series. Counting his win in Las Vegas, Johnson has collected 49 Sprint Cup wins in 294 career starts, helping to ink his name into the history books as he took his 15th career win at a 1.5-mile track, becoming the first driver to collect that many victories at those tracks in Cup Series history.

Johnson is racing this season to post his fifth straight Sprint Cup Series Chase for the Championship win, marking the era of No. 48 in the stock car racing circuit. His mesmerizingly perfect calculations on the track have helped to sell NASCAR tickets like crazy, and catching Jimmie Johnson in action is guaranteed to be a history-making endeavor.

With his two wins out of the first three starts in the 2010 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Jimmie Johnson has reclaimed his throne as the leading force in stock car racing once again this year. There’s no doubt No. 48 is a legend in the making, but he’s also had some luck to coast him through the start of this year’s racing season. At the Auto Club 500 in Fontana, Calif. on Feb. 21, a stroke of luck helped Johnson skirt Kevin Harvick for the big win. Johnson pitted late in the race with 26 laps to go just a split second before a late caution flag was thrown, allowing him to get in front of the pack on pit road and take the lead for the final 20 laps of the race.

After Johnson trumped Harvick’s monumental day at Fontana, Harvick told ESPN, “They’re really good, but they’re really, really lucky, too. Jimmie is a good friend of mine, but there’s no denying how lucky they are. They have a golden horseshoe stuck up their a**.”

Horseshoe or not, Jimmie Johnson proved the very next week he hasn’t won four Cup Series championships based on luck alone. His incredible win at Las Vegas on Feb. 28 solidified Jimmie Johnson as a legit contender, and he’ll continue being the top competitor of the Cup Series heading into the month of March. NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series heads into Atlanta (March 7), Bristol (March 21) and Martinsville (March 28) to round out the month, and the stock car racing circuit has placed a target on Johnson’s No. 48 vehicle as drivers attempt to overhaul Jimmie Johnson and the Sprint Cup Series takes form.
