Jimmie Johnson and his Team Lowe’s Racing posse head to the Lone Star State seeking redemption this weekend. The No. 48 has not been to Victory Lane for 21 races, and there's no better place to return to winning than the Texas Motor Speedway. In addition to "Remembering The Alamo" when he heads to Texas, Jimmie likes to remember his series leading five wins at the track. Four of his wins have come in the last six races, including this spring and the last three consecutive fall races.
The 2015 NASCAR season is rapidly racing towards the sunset at Homestead. With only five races remaining, you still have three opportunities to give your kids a race day experience they’ll never forget. When you purchase the Jimmie Johnson Family Ticket Package from participating tracks, your kids will have the opportunity for an up close Q&A session with six-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson, just before he climbs behind the wheel of the No. 48 Lowe’s Chevy. They will also receive a fun and educational activity book, “Rockets & Racecars,” which is STEM focused and compares NASA’s space rockets to Jimmie’s No. 48 car (which can be a rocket in its own right!). Prior to Jimmie’s arrival at the package, NASA instructors will be on-site to provide fun, instructional activities to keep even the littlest fans engaged and excited for race day!
This weekend Jimmie Johnson and Team Lowe’s Racing will be gunning for a season sweep at Kansas Speedway. In May the team won the SpongeBob SquarePants 400, which was the No. 48 team’s third triumph in the “Heartland.” The road to victory was far from easy as the six-time champ only led ten laps and won after man-handling a loose racecar around the slippery and lightning fast 1.5 mile oval.
How often does the prospect of getting a brand new car for $48 dollars present itself? The Jimmie Johnson Foundation is offering one such opportunity for you to “Win Jimmie’s Chevy.” This year the vehicle is a 2015 Chevy Suburban LTZ 4WD. This brand new Chevy Suburban features best in class fuel economy, 8,300 lbs of towing muscle, and tons of cargo space. It has been upgraded with top of the line features to accommodate even the most active lifestyle. Jimmie Johnson will personally hand over the keys to the winner in Charlotte, NC. As if that wasn’t enough, the taxes will be paid by the Jimmie Johnson Foundation.

One Driver. One Team. One Sponsor. After 499 starts and 74 victories, Jimmie Johnson is still piloting the No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Team Lowe’s Racing Chevrolet. Tomorrow’s AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway will be the 500th NASCAR start for this dynastic partnership.
Jimmie Johnson will be making his 500th career NASCAR Sprint Cup start when he takes the green flag this Sunday at Dover International Speedway. The one mile high banked concrete oval was the site of the No. 48’s most recent win in May, and it just so happens to be one of Jimmie’s favorite tracks. Johnson and the Team Lowe’s Racing crew have captured a record ten checkered flags at the “Monster Mile.” In 27 starts there, they also lay claim to 15 top five’s, 20 top ten’s, 3 poles, and 2,999 laps led (a Dover record).
As the NASCAR world gears up for the Chase for the Sprint Cup starting this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway, Jimmie Johnson took some time to visit children in the pediatric unit of the Kansas University Hospital. Thanks to Lowe's, Jimmie was able to bring the kids hats, diecasts and other fun racing memorabilia, which he took time to sign as he met with each of them.
