Won’t: Jimmie Johnson
How the might have fallen.
From title contender in 2017, to winless and out in the first round of The Cup Series championship, Jimmie Johnson has seemingly hit rock bottom. Unfortunately for Johnson, his troubles don’t end there, as he is set to lose his longtime crew chief, Chad Knaus at the end of the season, and his longtime sponsor Lowe’s as well.
If nothing else, Jimmie Johnson is the definition of a driver on borrowed time and all of these factors are starting to add up to his eventual retirement. It may not happen in 2019, it may not happen in 2020, but if anyone believes that Johnson will still be a full time Cup Series driver in five years, they are beyond crazy!
