Jimmie Johnson Won a Seventh NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship

Jimmie Johnson joined some very elite company on Sunday as he won his seventh Sprint Cup Championship. Johnson, who won the championship in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2013, and this year in 2016, joins Dale Earnhardt and Richard Petty as the only seven time champions.

This was Johnson’s first win at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and he led only the final three laps of the race.

After the race, Johnson told NBC he was calm and “wanted to believe it would happen.”

“For some reason, I just felt good and calm today and things just kind of unfolded at the end for us, along with help from above,” Johnson told NBC Sports. “In my heart, I wanted to believe it would happen and it has.”

Wow.
