Pit Reporter Jimmie

Behind the Scenes

You just might not believe this one, so we’ll just let you take a look at this classic clip of television broadcasting gold for yourself…

Have you ever seen a more exuberant Jimmie Johnson?! We sure haven’t.

This gig was short lived for Johnson, but not for a lack of emotion or expertise – he just had too much racing in the series to do himself!
