Superman prevails, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg

Jimmie Johnson won the superhero battle Sunday.

Jimmie Johnson won the superhero battle Sunday.

The much hyped battle of the superhero’s didn’t quite pan out Sunday during the NASCAR Sprint Cup series Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway. Jimmie Johnson, assuming the role of Superman, was able to overcome the Kryptonite being wielded by Kevin Harvick and score his 77th career win  and proving that he may well indeed be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, or at least leap one Kevin Harvick in a single lap.

Dale Earnhardt Jr., in the role of Batman, didn’t fare as well. What might have been an epic battle on the track between he and Johnson, aka Superman, would have been a marketers, (or in this case Warner Brothers) dream. However, the two were never really close; which had to give the marketing folks at the WB fits, despite the fact that every trailer they have released for the Superman vs. Batman movie has already shown us what will happen in the actual movie.

The only driver Earnhardt was close with Sunday was Kurt Busch; in fact too close at one point.
