NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson becomes first time father

Wikinews
July 9, 2010

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Jimmie Johnson and his wife Chandra Johnson welcomed their first child Wednesday. The child was born at 1:44 p.m. US EDT (1744 UTC) in Charlotte, North Carolina, and was a female. She weighed six pounds and fourteen ounces, and she was 19.5 inches long. However, they have yet to name the child.

Since the child was born on Wednesday, Jimmie Johnson will be able to race at Chicagoland Speedway Saturday. Jimmie Johnson, his crewchief, and his car owner had prepared Aric Almorola as a substitute driver, in case Johnson had to leave during a race because of birth.

The Johnsons were not the only family in NASCAR to expect the birth of a child. Some others include Jamie McMurray, Juan Pablo Montoya, and Johnson's teammate Jeff Gordon.
