We love finding people who are passionate not only about what they do for a living, but also about our favorite sport. Top NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson is one of those people. He’s a six-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion who also happens to be an enthusiastic triathlete. Even if you’re clueless about the inner workings of NASCAR, it’s fascinating to go behind the scenes and to see how Johnson uses triathlon training to stay in shape for driving. Triathlete was invited by Gatorade to spend the weekend with Johnson and his #48 team at the Cheez-It 355 in Watkins Glen, NY, in August.
