Jimmie nominated for a Kid's Choice Sports Award


Six-time NASCAR Champion Jimmie Johnson is earning quite a reputation with the adolescent crowd. At the track he often meets with young fans before he pilots the No. 48 Chevy (to learn more about these opportunities and official Jimmie Johnson ticket packages, head over to the appearances page).

Away from the track, Johnson has lent his voice to two Nickelodeon shows. Last June he starred as Jimmie the Lobster on Bubbleguppies, and most recently as Dash the Monster Truck in Blaze and the Monster Machines.

Now Jimmie is nominated for a Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Sport’s Award in the Need for Speed category. He has some tough competition in his international co-nominees:

Billy Hamilton: MLB center-fielder for the Cincinnati Reds

Chloe Kim: American professional snowboarder

Candace Hill: American track and field athlete

Ted Ligety: American alpine ski Olympian

Usain Bolt: Jamaican track and field Olympian
