Here is your 2006 NASCAR Nextel Cup Champion
Even though I am not a Jimmie fan, you have to give him some props. He won the Daytona 500 and Brickyard 400 this year. He started out in the hole early in the Chase and was practically counted out as a contender. He won at Martinsville. He had second place finishes at Texas and Phoenix. And finished 9th today in today’s race at Homestead. He finished 56 points ahead of Matt Kenseth to win his first championship.
I am so glad that Nothing But Commercials or otherwise known as NBC will NOT be covering the races next year. For one, I was already tired of hearing all about Jimmie. It was as if they had already handed the championship to him. Now that he has won we won’t have to hear about how he was always so close but never could get over that hump to win a championship.
I am looking forward to 2007. I will post later on this week with my favorite and not so favorite moments from 2006.
