NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett analyzed what happened to Jimmie Johnson and his failure to make the championship round on Monday's edition of NASCAR America,

"I think the big thing was that they continued to battle," Jarrett said. "We didn't hear them throwing things at each other - Jimmie blaming Chad or Chad blaming Jimmie, anything like that. They're still a tight-knit organization and group. And I think that's the biggest thing.

"I'm sure people are going to say now, I'm sure it's out there, that it's time for Chad to go, they need to split this up and do something different. That couldn't be farther from the truth.

"They just have always been able to fix things. I had this conversation on Friday, that they've always shown us you can fix it. They said, well, this time, they haven't been able to, but were hoping to and thought they could at Phoenix.

"This was Mt. Everest they were trying to climb. They just couldn't make it."
