I know you love NASCAR even more than I do, so I figured (drunkenly) that I should challenge you to a NASCAR TD.
I'd just like to say that I like Jimmie Johnson, but he's not my favorite driver. I'm a Kasey Kahne fan, but that's another story.
Anyways.... I'm ready to crown Jimmie Johnson with his 6th Sprint Cup Championship. Are you? After a slow start to the season and a disappointing finish last season, Jimmie has really turned up the heat this season.
He JUST now took over the points lead for the Sprint Cup, but has been running extremely strong this year (except for Daytona and Talladega). He's been an unstoppable force that hasn't met its immovable object yet in his career. In my humble opinion, he could go down as the best ever.
I know I didn't use all my characters, but if you disagree with me, let's friggin' throwdown!
BTW Eric Church is awesome (so is Luke Bryan).

Jimmie Johnson has just as good of a shot as anybody, but having the points lead now means nothing. When the Chase starts, the top 12 drivers all close in. Brad Keselowski and Tony Stewart have 3 wins as well. If the Chase started today, Bad Brad and Smoke would be tied for the points lead with JJ.
The odds are against Johnson getting a 6th.
I can't argue for my favorite driver, Harvick because he's been unimpressive this season.
Really the only driver I have confidence in arguing for is Tony Stewart.
Remember last season, we all wrote Smoke off as a non factor in the Chase? He had a rough regular season and barely got in, but I think we all remember what happened last time.
Tony Stewart throughout his career has won the vast majority of his races in the second half of the season, he already has 3 this season, and his performance in the Chase last season shows he still knows how to get it done.
Jimmie had a nice run, 5 in a row will probably never happen again, but in the end I like Smoke to repeat.
Good luck Easy Mac. Eric Church is indeed awesome, can't say the same for Luke Bryan though.
