    Johnson’s celebrating his other ball dropping — so he’s warning everybody he is the 2019 “Bull in the China-shop”.

    Supposedly, Chandra has ruled that out.

    Everyone says Jimmie is boring or vanilla or whatever, just because he doesn't act like a child and throw temper tantrums when things don't go his way. What a joke. He expresses his passion in a professional manner which is fine by me. Anyone who pays any attention might notice he's not afraid to speak his mind. Just look at his twitter for example. Jimmie is the man!

    As far as the announcement, I have no idea, but I'm hoping he'll run Eldora this summer in a GMS truck.

    He needs to know that you can't bump and run in IndyCar so how could he ever win a race?

    I have never understood the backlash toward JJ as he comes off as a decent person and his career cannot be defined by being an on track menace or a bad teammate.

    As often is the case with ultra successful people I suspect much of the dislike comes because he whipped the objects of others affection.

    The guy is the GOAT of his era and he is easily in the all time top 5.

    Looks like his sponsor is happy so far. I hope she doesn't put him a cat suit, like another sponsor did to another driver one time.:D

    I know this involves HMS as well as JJ but one of the most impressive things for me this off season was the sponsorship deal with the 48 team and Ally.

    People dislike JJ because he whipped Jeff Gordon's ass for 8 years.

    People dislike JJ because that #48 team whipped everyone’s ass for 8 years.

    I was basically introduced to NASCAR hating Jimmie.. 2009, at the end of his streak.. I started watching with my Dad (Stewart fan) and our neighbor (Harvick fan) and all they ever said was how hes a cheater and this and that.. once I grew to know more about the sport I grew to respect him but yeah at first I was totally anti-JJ

    So in the last quarter mile JJ will shift out from behind the leading Kenyan and push him to the ground to take the win?

    ..and then 90% of the runners behind them will then begin tripping and falling all over each other

    I don't like Marathons. The races are too long and the field gets too strung out. We need to restrict all the people's breathing and have stages in the race.

    Ugh.....this is a " major" announcement ? So he's running a marathon....ummm...good for him...yay!....i guess? I would think something more racing/ sponsor related would be major. Not this.

    Replay will confirm, he clips him in the left quarter Nike. Misjudged the aggressive side draft. Just one of them marathon deals.

    Good for him. Running a marathon is a serious undertaking. For those disappointed, I think he tried to downplay the "bigness" himself yesterday after it was promoted.

    Hey, I'm this forum's only Harvick fan and I like Seven Time. Dude is chill and kicks ass. Loving the new scheme too. Purple is hardly ever done.

    You're going to get corrected there. I can think of four off the top of my head, and I know I'm missing someone.

    I hope they start Jimmie in the back, I'd hate to see a Boston Marathon "big one" at the start.

    Guilty as charged. Really guilty as he was beating the 24’s ass for those 8 years. Now I respect the hell outta JJ and hope he wins one or two more Cups.

    Probably, but NBC also televises the race so that's probably why. Any opportunity they can get to cross-promote...
