NASCAR America: Jimmie Johnson and Chad Knaus continue to add to their legacy

NASCAR America discusses what makes the duo of Jimmie Johnson and Chad Knaus so special as the No. 48 car pushes for another Sprint Cup title.

Jimmie Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus break down how they earned their ninth win at Martinsville and the 79th of Johnson’s career, which also locks them into the Championship 4 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Plus, the NASCAR America crew discusses what makes this Sprint Cup Series duo so special.

“Every once in a while you run into that special combination of talent and drive to be the best and Jimmie Johnson’s remarkably talented, but he also has the drive,” former Hendrick Motorsports crew chief Steve Letarte said. “Then you look at Chad Knaus who has the talent the ability, the understanding of a racecar. He looks at the details unlike anyone I’ve ever met, and then he also has the drive and the determination to be the best, and he doesn’t mind if he upsets you, upsets Jimmie, upsets Rick Hendrick, he doesn’t really care about the popularity of it.”
