Just hours after winning his fifth straight NASCAR Sprint Cup championship, Jimmie Johnson paid a visit to the set of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Johnson and Fallon competed on Big Wheels, and, well, it didn't quite go the way Johnson would have liked:

Hmm. So Fallon was able to do what Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick and the rest of NASCAR couldn't do, eh? Interesting. Johnson's fifth straight title has drawn criticism from fans who say Johnson is too vanilla for a rough-edged sport like NASCAR. Still, Johnson is the most impressive driver in NASCAR and one of the most dominating athletes in sports ... even if he can't seem to cycle his way through a hallway without spinning out.

Don't be surprised, then, if NASCAR mandates that all drivers must now pedal Big Wheels. Anything to level the playing field.
