Johnson Makes Most of Chance Who's the Boss?

In September 2001 Jeff Gordon offered then little-known Jimmie
Johnson a ride with a team he was forming for the following
season. Since then it's often been hard to discern which of the
two is the four-time Winston Cup champion. Take last Sunday's New
England 300 in Louden, N.H. When Johnson crossed the finish line
for his second victory of the season, the driver directly in
front of him was Gordon, who would end up 24th. Since the start
of the 2002 season, Gordon has beaten Johnson 29 times; Johnson
has finished ahead of his owner 26 times.
