In any sport, 4 championships in a row is pretty incredible. Even in a non-sport competition like NASCAR, it's impressive. And that's what Jimmie Johnson is about to do. Yet somehow, it doesn't seem to be that big of a deal.

Personally, my opinion is that NASCAR isn't really the kind of thing that lends well to a "season" format. I'm not a fan, so perhaps my opinion is irrelevant, but it seems like the overall number of races won is more important than the number of season championships. Am I off base here?
