I just hope he can win a championship before he retires. That man has always had so much pressure on him because of his father. He's carried NASCAR since he was 26 years old. And on top of all that he's a very genuine, fun loving guy who loves his fans & the sport. He deserves it.

I mean he singlehandedly has more fans than every other driver combined. Even when he wasn't winning anything & Johnson was dominating the sport he was still the face of racing.

Which, I guess more than anything, just speaks volumes to the popularity & legacy of his father to this day.

Wut?  He is a genuinely nice guy and I'm glad to see him win one.  But to say that he has carried NASCAR since he was 26 years old is complete and total bullshit.  

 

And he won't win a championship before he retires.

Yes he has, Jr has been the face of NASCAR since the day his dad was killed. If he want there when Sr died the sport would've collapsed in popularity.

Newsflash, the sport has collapsed in popularity.  Have you looked at the grandstands?

 

If a guy that finished 25th in the point standings in 2009 or whatever and went three seasons without a win is what has carried the sport, well then I guess that does explain the decline in attendance.

Daytona, Talladega, Bristol, Indianapolis, Charlotte, etc still sell out every year.

Phoenix, Las Vegas, etc were never popular.

Might want to check your sellout statistics.  

 

Hint, they are wrong.
