The Fifth NASCAR Day of Christmas: Five in a Row

Jimmie Johnson celebrates each of his five championship wins - from 2006 to 2010.

Cale Yarborough didn't do it.

Dale Earnhardt didn't do it.

Even King Petty didn't do it.

But Jimmie Johnson, a kid from El Cajon, Calif., did.

Johnson's five consecutive Cup championships are unprecedented and unparalleled.  And with his monumental come-from-behind points win in 2010, the driver has cemented his place in NASCAR history.

And the racing world thought four in a row was impressive.

Of course, some fans may not like that Johnson has dominated the sport for half a decade. But that doesn't change the fact that Johnson is the real deal.  And his crew chief is none too shabby either.

Johnson and Chad Knaus may well be unbeatable. And 2011 may just bring win number six.
