7 Time

I'm  not a big fan of Jimmie Johnson in the NASCAR Sprint series, but I certainly respect him for winning his 7th series title.
From ESPN: Jimmie Johnson had the commemorative helmet and a photographer chronicling his every move. He even ran a symbolic 7 miles the night before his shot at a seventh championship.
He must have known something special was coming.
Johnson was the dog of the championship contenders in a winner-take-all season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. He needed only to beat three other drivers to tie Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt as drivers with seven titles, but he was the worst of the final four for all but one lap Sunday night.
Johnson was practically gifted his seventh title when Carl Edwards' aggressive attempt to win the championship ended in a wreck that opened the door. Johnson got the restart of his life in overtime, took the lead on the last lap of the race, won for the first time in his career at Homestead and grabbed that elusive seventh title.
To make it more remarkable, Johnson started in last place and ended up winning.
Congratulations to 7 Time.
