El Cajon Celebration Planned For Six-Time NASCAR Champion
Jimmie Johnson

(El Cajon, Calif.) - The El Cajon City Council is recognizing El Cajon native Jimmie Johnson for his racing accomplishments and philanthropic contributions to the community on Tuesday, June 17, as he returns to El Cajon for this special celebration. The City is encouraging everyone to attend and show their support for one of NASCAR’s biggest stars.

El Cajon Mayor Bill Wells, the City Council, Senator Joel Anderson, and other local dignitaries will be honoring Johnson during a special ceremony beginning promptly at 11:00 a.m. local time. Additionally, portions of the event will be broadcast live on 101.5 KGB.

Johnson continues to make his hometown proud. In 2013, he won his sixth NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship, adding to a NASCAR record five championships in a row (2006-2010). At just 38, he is the youngest driver to win six titles. His 66 Sprint Cup wins since 2002 ties him for eighth on the all-time wins list.

Despite his extremely busy schedule, Johnson still visits San Diego each year, not only to see family, but to give back to the community through the Jimmie Johnson Foundation. To date, his Foundation has given more than $6.5 million dollars to schools here in El Cajon and across the nation.

Come out and show your support of El Cajon’s NASCAR superstar!
