Jimmie Johnson to visit twister-hit town

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Five-Time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson will visit tornado-ravaged Moore, Okla., on Thursday to help distribute supplies to victims of the May 19-20 tornados.

Johnson will be accompanied by his wife, Chani, a native of Muskogee. The visit is in conjunction with Johnson’s sponsor, Lowe’s, and the Feed the Children initiative.

Johnson said Monday he hopes University of Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops and other Sooners join him.

Johnson also says he’ll donate his winnings from Sunday’s race at Dover to tornado recovery efforts.

The Jimmie Johnson Foundation each year also donates to school projects in Oklahoma, along with California and Charlotte, where he currently lives.
