While the hoops season is just about to start, there is just one race remaining in the Chase for the Nextel Cup. Truth is, doing the math, and listening to Jeff Gordon on Sunday, this season is already over.
Gordon's teammate Jimmy Johnson has an 86-point lead, the more impressive aspect is the manner in which he's grabbed it.
Johnson has won four consecutive races. This is not easy folks, a lot of things have to go right, and right now, Johnson's on top of the sport, though he won't acknowledge that until next week.
"I don't want to act like it's our championship yet, we have a nice margin in the points right now, but 400 miles, that's my goal, I have to run 400 more miles, and then I will get nuts after that," says the likely Nascar champion.
