NASCAR: Jimmie Johnson -- the quiet racing megastar

Sep 12, 2012 Full story: Detroit Free Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- In a quiet neighborhood on the leafy streets of south Charlotte where he and his wife Chandra have lived for nearly eight years, Jimmie Johnson begins most days at 6a.m. with standing overhead presses, pull-ups and frontal raises with 80-pound dumbbells as he trains for an Olympic-length triathlon in December.

has anyone ever noticed, he does not mention his parents very much even thou they gave up a lot for him to begin his racing career. when his child was born, her mother was there & she visits them a lot & has wife's family at their house. his family was not allowed to see the child until she was weeks/month old. it appears they shut out his family. JJ & wife really cares about money. but not about his roots. too many movie/tv stars are their friends. I do not have much respect for him nor his money hungry wife.

And how exactly do you know so much about their person lives. Who are you the Enquirer. I have heard him mention his parents many times in past interviews. Just curious , which Nascar racer are you comparing him to that thanks mom and dad every time. I personally can't think of any of them that thanks mom and dad after every victory.
And even if there are family issues,...who are you to jusdge. Is everything in your family just peachy keen and perfect.
By the way he isn't money hungry...he just wins often and gets big paychecks. Weathly should not be confused with being money hungry. If he was money hungry wouldnt he also be racing in the Nationwide series and truk series and other races too so that he can collect MORE money. You are a real toilet for making such stupid and personal statements.
