immie Johnson raises his arms in triumph Sunday after winning in New Hampshire — his second straight NASCAR Sprint Cup victory.
JOLIET, Ill. (AP) - NASCAR champion and new father Jimmie
Johnson plans to fly home to Charlotte after a qualifying session
at Chicagoland Speedway to spend the night with his family, then
return in time for Saturday night's Sprint Cup race.
Johnson's wife, Chandra, gave birth to a daughter Wednesday.
Johnson calls it "the absolute best day of my life" and says he
can't wait to get home.
Johnson makes his living going fast, but he and his wife aren't
setting any speed records when it comes to picking a baby name.
They're calling her "Baby J" for now, and Johnson knows they'll
have to make a decision soon.
As Johnson joked, "The clock is ticking."
