M.I.R… Most Improved Racer this season!
This season there has been a number of “stand out” racers who have “wowed” the world with their incredible runs as well as their domination over the field. There has also been a number of racers who have started out slow but have made their way back to the top and showed the world they’re the real deal Hollyfield.
Who do I think is the stand out M.I.R? And why does this driver deserve the M.I.R. award I’m about to give him?
Jimmie Johnson started this 2008 season as if he was a rookie learning how to drive a car. He didn’t know the gas pedal from the brake pedal and I think he even skipped a few gears going from 2nd gear to 4th. Overall the driver’s first 6 races were as if he didn’t know how to turn left. If you were new to NASCAR you wouldn’t even know who Jimmie Johnson was, let alone know he is the defending two time Champion.
Midway through this season he started jumping up in the top ten and sometimes in the top 5, but he would still have a few races where he finished 20th or even 30th. The driver has been a roller coaster of a racer and one you wouldn’t want to put your money on.
The reason why Jimmie Johnson deserves this prestigious award is because the man has come from mediocre to 3rd place. He’s still not beating the main man Kyle Busch but as the saying goes… “he’s a close third.”
Another reason why I picked Jimmie Johnson as my M.I.R. is because of his hot wife. It allows me to post yet another picture of Chandra Johnson.
Here she is!
uhhh… what’s this article about?
Not to change the subject again… but who is your M.I.R. of the 2008 season and why do you think they deserve the award.
