Stephen Colbert vs. Jimmie Johnson in Office Chair Race (VIDEO)

Jimmie Johnson, 'The Colbert Report'After a perfectly lovely interview with five-time Sprint Cup winning NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson, Stephen Colbert got down to what really mattered on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central). He challenged Johnson to a race.

And none of that namby-pamby racing in cars for this race. Nor would it be a foot race. Instead, it was to be a simple two lap circuit around the raised interview platform ... in their rolling office chairs. It was a brutal affair, but as it was all turns, Johnson found it incredibly hard to get past Colbert throughout the race, until a late rally on the last lap leading to a photo finish.

But where was the trophy?

What rock has Jason Hughes been living under. You FAIL as a reporter and obviously dont keep up with current events. Jimmie is a FIVE(2?!)-time Sprint(Spring?!) Cup Champion.
