After Darlington, this is it. Indianapolis is a do-or-die scenario for Johnson, currently set to miss the playoffs for the first time in his career. A win would solve all, and -- luckily for him -- Johnson has twice as many Brickyard 400 wins (four) as any other active driver.

But, since his last win(2012, was that the bad tire race?) he's finished 2nd, 14th, 15th, 3rd, 27th and 16th

Even his best track, Martinsville.. He's failed to get a top 10 since his last win in 2016.

So, I don't think history matters a whole lot

JJ said something after the race. He said, "I've been lucky for a lot of years. I can't complain about being unlucky now."

It did seem like he had a lock on that golden horseshoe.

JJ is still a great driver, it's just that when he came in, he was at another level, plus HMS was also at another level. Over the past few years, other teams like JGR and SHR, have reached that same level now.

Before, JJ's main competition was Jeff Gordon, Smoke and a few others. Now his competition could be nearly half the field on any given Sunday--the talent level is much higher now.

Hard to see Jimmie not in the Chase this year, but like he said, he and his team should be commended for their consecutive streak they had.

JJ looks to still be fired up. Hope the 48 team can get a win this season and maybe get back on track for 2020. Wining his 8th title will be made even tougher when the Gen 7 car comes out. It seems like it takes JJ a while to really get to know a car after a major change takes place.
