Congratulations to NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson and his wife Chandra!  The couple have a new addition to the family as of Wednesday, a baby girl named Chandra.  As of right now, the Jimmie Johnson baby girl is yet to have a name yet.  Johnson is scheduled for a race in Chicago this coming Saturday, so he will be riding high.  According to reports he had Aric Almirola ready to take his place in case Chandra went into labor later then she did.

According to Yahoo! Sports, Johnson is now the third Sprint Cup Series driver to become a father this year.  Juan Pablo Montoya, Jeff Gordon and Jamie McMurray all have wives expecting later this year too.  The NASCAR family keeps growing and growing!

This is Johnson and his wife’s first child.  Currently, Johnson is NASCAR’s current four-time champion and is hoping to cap off a fifth series win this season.  Johnson sits in third place in the Sprint Cup standings right now at 225 points behind the leader Kevin Harvick.  A fifth straight win would be impressive.  It would also make a great first year story for the new child to tell friends in the future!
