Jimmie Johnson To Be On Cover of Sports Illustrated


I guess some people other than race fans read my little old blog here, especially yesterday's post and links.

Much to my surprise the powers that be over at Sports Illustrated have emailed me confirming that Jimmie will indeed be on their upcoming November 24th cover entitled "NASCAR COOL". The email included the picture of the cover and the complete Lars Anderson story of Jimmie's record tying 3rd straight Championship. As a NASCAR fan I appreciate the fact that Jimmie is finally getting his due - he deserves it. Thanks SI.

I don't know if I have permission to do this but I'm going to put the cover up on my site for you to look at, but the Lars Anderson story you'll have to get from the newsstand or si.com when it comes out - it is a good read by the way and I recommend you read it even if you are not a Jimmie fan because you just might be more of one when you're done.
