JJ races to a sixth Sprint Cup title

1/6/2014

The two-week reign of NFL quarterbacks atop the Cross-Sport rankings and the five-week span in which a pro signal-caller was ranked inside the top five has come to an end. Jimmie Johnson took over that top position after racing his way to a sixth Sprint Cup Championship in the past eight seasons. With that title win, 66 percent of SportsNation voters are calling Johnson the greatest NASCAR driver of all time.

Filling out the non-NFL QB top five: RB Cartel Brooks, the NCAA's new all-division single-game rushing leader; UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre, for his 12th consecutive win inside the Octagon, albeit a controversial win; Grinnell guard Jack Taylor and his second (yes, second) career 100-plus point game; and Auburn WR Ricardo Louis, for making arguably the play of the year in college football.
