HOUSTON -- Just days away from Super Bowl LI, Jimmie Johnson has made his way to Houston to take in some of the festivities.

As part of his journey, he visited Radio Row and participated in a variety of interviews.

One of his first stops was with "The Jim Rome Show," where the host asked him about his mindset as he sets his sights on what would be a record-setting eighth NASCAR Cup Series title.

"Looking at eight, I was very loose and comfortable during the chase for seven, and I've got to keep that going," Johnson explained.

Hear more from Johnson with Rome, including how he felt in the midst of his streak of five consecutive championships, in the clip below.
