Jimmie Johnson Planning On Doing A Double

Defending NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson will be starting 10th in tonight’s race at Richmond International Raceway. But that is not the only race he is planning on running this weekend.

Johnson could be a two-time winner this weekend if everything goes his way. First, he would love to win the Cup race Saturday night particularly because he has yet to pick up his first win of the 2014 season. But the fact is that RIR is not a place where the race has always gone the way Johnson would have liked. Rookie Kyle Larson will lead the field to green for tonight’s race.

Regardless of how things go for Johnson Saturday night, he will be up and at ’em early Sunday morning as he has committed to running in the Jimmie Johnson Foundation 5K Run/Walk and Family Fun Run. This event is the first of four fund raising activities in the “Wellness Challenge” that Johnson’s foundation is presenting this season.

Johnson has developed a passion for fitness that helps him meet the demands of competing at racing’s highest level and plans to personally compete in three of the four Challenge events scheduled.
