LONG POND, Pa. -- Jimmie Johnson walked into the media center holding his daughter's hand, his pregnant wife right behind them. Their second child is due in September, right around the time of the final race before the Chase field is set.
With an automatic berth in NASCAR's playoffs secured, Johnson has permission to skip the race for the big birth.
Jimmie Johnson dominated the rest of the field Sunday at Pocono Raceway to win his third race of the season.
"If Chani goes into labor early, I don't have to worry about Richmond," Johnson said.
A week after a late penalty denied his chance at a win, Johnson absolutely dominated Sunday at Pocono Raceway, leading 128 of 160 laps for his third victory of the season.
