"Jimmie Johnson is almost a full race in front of all of his challengers for the Sprint Cup championship.
With the point race taking a break this week for the Sprint All-Star Race, Johnson holds a 44-point lead over second-place Carl Edwards after 11 events. Everyone lower than the top five is at least two races behind Johnson’s pace.
Although third-place Matt Kenseth holds the lead in victories (with three), Johnson has more top fives (six) and top 10s (eight) than any other driver, and he has finished every race.
It’s a quite pleasant start as Johnson searches for his sixth championship."

"Jimmie Johnson will become a father again soon, as he and wife, Chani, announced earlier this week.
Johnson is well on his way to become something else soon, as well -- the greatest driver in NASCAR history, better than Richard Petty and better than Dale Earnhardt.
Yeah. That's right. I said it. I mean it. And I'm not alone."
Jimmie Johnson showed at Martinsville Speedway Sunday that he has reached Chase form and it’s only April.
He has two victories, including the Daytona 500, as well as finishes of second and sixth and six races of the season. He struggled only in one race — at Auto Club Speedway in California at couple of weeks ago.
Gone is the talk from February that the new car might even the playing field. After his second win of the season, look who’s atop the points standings again after a dominating performance at Martinsville.
