Found April 23, 2012 on Fox Sports:
For at least a while Sunday at Kansas Speedway, we saw a chance that drivers like Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Martin Truex Jr. were finally going to break their losing streaks and get back to Victory Lane.

That said, I still will tell you that those drivers need to keep doing what they are doing. When you keep performing like they are right now, the wins will come.

Johnson king of NASCAR role models

Forbes once again has put out their annual list of Most Influential Athletes, and our own Jimmie Johnson is at the top of the list for the second year in a row. I am really thrilled for Jimmie.
