After the devastating tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma, four-time Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson and his wife Chandra, who grew up in that state, wanted to help. In addition to donating his Charlotte All-Star race winnings, reported to be $1 million, they visited the town on Thursday, along with other NASCAR officials, to help bring some relief to families.
At the Lowe’s Home Improvement store there, the group passed out supplies including buckets, gloves, disinfectant wipes and oatmeal. The company, which is also a sponsor of Jimmie’s, has already donated $1 million to tornado relief.
Millions of additional dollars are pouring in from the NASCAR community of drivers, owners and fans, according to ESPN.
