In yesterday's Race for the Cup,wins his fifth Nascar Sprint Cup Championship. Not only is it his fifth, but he also won his fifth CONSECUTIVE Championship. You have got to say that this is one heck of a driver with a good crew behind him.
In 2006 he won his first Championship. For that season he had five wins, thirteen top fives, twenty-four top ten's and one pole. Won the Daytona 500, won his first events in Talladega in May, and in Indianapolis in August. His pole win was in Martinsville in April.
In 2007 he won his second Championship. He had ten wins, twenty top fives, twenty-four top tens, and four poles. He became the first driver since Hendrick Motorsports teammatein 1997-98 to win consecutive series titles.
In 2008 he and Carl Yarborough tied in having three consecutive wins. Carl Yarborough won from 1975-1978. In this season he won six poles.Won this championship by sixty-nine points ahead of.
In 2009 he beat Mark Martin by 141 points. He had sixteen top five finishes, twenty-four top tens, won four Chase races, and the first driver to be named Associated Press Maleof the Year in 78 years of the award.
This season he had six wins, seventeen top fives, and twenty-three top tens. His pit crew chief Chad Kanaus called him aStar. Every time he won a series title, his stats looked better and better. With his fifth series title under his belt, I do not think he is going to back down from another one next season. He has Championship fever.
