2009 Dover Sept NSCS Jimme Johnson and crew member in Victory Lane thumb Members of the media were recently asked to rank the top NASCAR drivers of the decade. This should be a no-brainer. Jimmie Johnson + four straight Cup championships = best driver of the decade.

It will be interesting to see if anyone makes a case for another driver.

Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon, Kurt Busch and Matt Kenseth were among the other choices.

Go to Haddock in the Paddock to see how I ranked them and why.
