Just because Jimmie Johnson won the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup doesn't mean that it's all about him. At the annual Myers Brothers Awards last Thursday, General Motors presented Jimmie's wife Chandra with the key to a 2007 Corvette convertible. Which is really nice, because that's a $55,000 financial hit he won't have to shell out from the $15,770,125 (!) in prize money he collected at NASCAR awards banquet the following night. Honestly, we don't know what he'd have done otherwise.

For her part, the lovely Mrs. J playfully said that Jimmie could "be her chauffeur."

Jimmie Johnson is, by all accounts, a very lucky guy...

      Did she do anything to earn the 'Vette (e.g., charity work)? The article doesn't say. Did GM give it to her just to get some publicity for the 'Vette? That seems unlikely to me.

      Things have not been going so well for Jimmy and jeff this year so far I hope they get it together soon. It is nice to see other people win also. It is a great sport.
