Jimmie Johnson Missing Richmond Practice Before Chase For Sprint Cup Playoff

Jimmie hoped to time his daughter’s birth so he wouldn’t have to miss a race, but babies wait for no one!

The hardcore racer He told USA TODAY Sports he hoped the baby would be a mid-week arrival, but that he was willing to miss his planned Richmond International Raceway activities if necessary. Jimmie’s daughter was actually due a week later, the opening weekend of the Chase for the Sprint Cup playoff, so her early arrival worked just fine for Jimmie, the five time champion!

Regan Smith will fill in for Jimmie in the interim, but Jimmie is expected to return for practice before the big race.
