Thank you for your patronage


It's been a long run folks, I started this website in 1998, and for those of you in the know, our Top Ten Game has been running even longer!

Unless someone steps forward in the next month or so that's willing to buy the intellectual rights and take over, this website has reached it's end. I'm pulling the plug December 31st, as it's just too much for me to keep up with. Life has gotten in the way, and I'm closing in on retirement as well.

I do want to thank everyone that has visited, and especially those that have participated in our game for your patronage. Some game players have been at this since the beginning, that means a few years before the on-line version of this game ever started. Again, thank you!

Next week I'll try and put together some game stats and website stats.

Jimmie Johnson Makes History,

Ties Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt for Most Premier Series Championships

 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (November 20, 2016) - History has been made.

 

Jimmie Johnson captured his record-tying seventh NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship with a stirring victory Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, tying NASCAR Hall of Famers Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt atop the all-time list.

 

Sunday's win was Johnson's 80th career victory.

 

To win the 2016 championship, the driver of the No. 48 Lowe's Chevrolet outdueled the other Championship 4 drivers Joey Logano (fourth), Kyle Busch (sixth) and Carl Edwards (34th) at Homestead.

 

It was a year of sevens for Johnson, who took over sole possession of seventh place on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series all-time wins list after his win at Auto Club Speedway earlier this season. His wins at Atlanta and Auto Club catapulted him into the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.

 

Johnson breezed through the first round of the Chase, logging his two highest laps led totals of the season to that point at Chicagoland and Dover. When the Round of 12 rolled around, he added his all-time track-record eighth win at Charlotte, leading a race-high 155 laps on the way to a Round of 8 berth. Johnson was the first to lock up a spot in the Championship 4, winning at Martinsville Speedway for the ninth time.

 

At the age of 41, Johnson becomes the youngest seven-time champion. Petty was 42 when he captured his seventh title in 1979; Earnhardt was 43 in 1994.

 

All seven of Johnson's championships were won under team owner Rick Hendrick and with crew chief Chad Knaus.

 

Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports, captured his record-extending 12th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship. Along with Johnson's seven titles, Hendrick has won championships with Jeff Gordon (four) and Terry Labonte (one).

 

Knaus cemented his legacy as one of the top crew chiefs in NASCAR history with his seventh title, one shy of the all-time record held by NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Inman.

 

Also on Sunday, Chase Elliott was named Sunoco Rookie of the Year Award.
