Not to be an alarmist or anything, but That Man is at it again as the Chase for the Sprint Cup hits the middle portion of the schedule.
That Man being, of course, five-time champion Jimmie Johnson.
Who smoked everyone in Kansas today, leading 197 laps and rolling to his first victory in the 2011 Chase.
In the last two Chase races, he's finished second and first and has vaulted from 10th in the standings to third.
He's now just four points behind Chase leader Carl Edwards and only one behind second-place Kevin Harvick.
