So long, Jimmie?
While no one shouldve expected Jimmie Johnson to maintain his amazing career pace deep into his 40s, this ongoing slowdown is starting to look like a possible shutdown. It happens to all of them eventually. Jimmie hasnt led a lap all season. Not one. This didnt just happen. In the last 19 races of 2017, he led in just two of them, so its twice in his past 30 starts. That sounds like more than a mere slump.
