The "Great American Race" means something here. In a thrilling finish in which 20 or so drivers were within 5 seconds, Jimmie Johnson outpaced the competition to win the Daytona 500. To cap his 5 NASCAR Cup victories and his previous Daytona 500 win in 2006, Johnson proved that despite the hype surrounding Danica Patrick or the latest cup victory by
Brad Keselowski, Johnson is going to be around to torment his opponents, and no victory in Daytona or on the Cup will be easy. Johnson is a textbook case winner for the Sportsman of the Week!
