What Did Jimmie Johnson Just Say?

NASCAR Quote Machine v2

Robby Gordon was the quote machine last year at New Hampshire International Speedway. This year, it’s one of my two favorite whipping boys, Jimmie Johnson.

Pre-race Interview

During the pre-race show, Marty Snider was talking with Jimmy Johnson just before driver introductions. The conversation went like this:

Marty Snider: “Happy Birthday to Jimmie . . . hey, it’s your birthday today. Have you ever raced on your birthday before?”

Jimmie Johnson: “Ahh, I think I have . . . it usually falls on a Saturday or Sunday . . . so I have . . . and I’ve never treated myself to a birthday win, so hopefully we can do that today.”

If you immediately see the humor in that statement, you may have laughed in unison with the wife and I. We looked at each other and promptly busted guts.

My birthday present to Jimmie is this handy little chart. He can now answer that question more intelligently in the future.
