NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson and his wife, Chandra, are expecting their first baby next month. And although baby girl is supposed to arrive between the July 10th race in Chicago and the July 25th race in Indianapolis, Johnson isn’t taking any chances. If baby decides to come early, he has his plans set: golf cart to helicopter to plane to Chandra! Part-time driver Aric Almirola will be his substitute, although Johnson is debating whether to race that first lap himself (to be eligible for the points). Here’s hoping baby girl will arrive as scheduled and make all Johnson’s preparations moot!
