JJ okay after crash at Rolex practice

"Four-time defending Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson was unhurt Thursday in an accident in the opening practice for this weekend's Rolex 24 at Daytona Grand-Am Rolex Series sports-car race at Daytona International Speedway.

Johnson was driving the No. 99 Chevrolet Riley fielded by defending Rolex Series Daytona Prototype champions Gainsco Racing down the infield straightaway that has a high-speed kink in the middle when a slower car moved over on him and forced him into the infield, where he hit a barrier backwards.

The car was badly damaged. Johnson visited the track's infield hospital and was released. He is hoping to get back behind the wheel for another practice on Friday."

Jeez, Jimmie, don't DO this kind of stuff to me! :sigh: I'm glad he's okay. Chew him out for me, Chad (but not too badly).


Here are two short videos from Facebook with Chad's and Jimmie's reactions to the first 24/7 episode after the premiere (plus some revenge from the peanut gallery, LMAO - be sure to watch both):
LOL, makes you wonder if they took that photo in my last post before or after this incident...judging by the extra large sh*t-eating grins on their faces, I'm gonna guess afterward, hehe.
