The Life of Dad Christmas Show with 6-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion Jimmie Johnson
Jimmie Johnson is a 6-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion. He is the only driver in NASCAR’s history to earn five consecutive Sprint Cup titles. He is a 4-time ESPY winner for Driver of the Year. He was the 2009 Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year. Jimmie has been the driver of the Lowe’s No. 48 car since 2001. Still with all that he has accomplished I am guessing that he is most proud of being a husband to his wife Chandra and a father to his two lovely daughters, Genevieve and Lydia.
Even with the long hours each year that Johnson and the rest of Team 48 puts in to win another championship, Jimmie helps those in need. He has done this by creating the Jimmie Johnson Foundation. His foundation looks to assist children, families and communities in need. The Foundation currently focuses on supporting K-12 public education. They currently support the Champions Grant Program in partnership with Lowe’s Toolbox for Education, the Hendrick Marrow Program, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Project L.I.F.T. as their partner programs.
A leader both on and off the racetrack we had the fantastic opportunity to chat with Jimmie about racing, his foundation, and fatherhood. We want to thank Hendrick Motorsports for setting this interview up!
