NASCAR: Jimmie Johnson’s Wife’s Parents Found Dead in Murder Suicide
A terrible tragedy has struck NASCAR legend Jimmie Johnson's family after his in-laws and nephew were found shot to death in what appears to be a murder-suicide.
Jimmy Johnson is a seven-time NASCAR Cup Series Champion, five of his championships were consecutive wins which has him tied with Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt for most all-time.
I was lucky enough to see Jimmy Johnson race twice at the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Of Johnson's three wins at the Brickyard 400, the two wins I witness were back-to-back.
Jimmie Johnson met Chandra Janway in 2002 and the couple were married in 2004. The Johnsons have two daughters together and live in Charlotte, North Carolina. Monday, June 26, 2023 tragedy struck the Johnson and Janway families.
