Jimmie Johnson Won A NASCAR Race While Wearing A Clown Wig Yesterday

Jimmie Johnson won yesterday’s NASCAR race at Dover with a little help from a a very colourful wig.

After going winless in his first 10 races of the season, the 5-time NASCAR champion has now won two of the last three races. And for the FedEx 400, Johnson donned a colourful wig in support of his sponsor for the race, the movie “Madagascar 3.” But not only did Johnson wear the wig prior to, and after, the race, but he also wore it during the race.

Here is video of Johnson emerging from his car after the race with wig intact and explaining why he went with the colourful afro (via Fox Sports)
