Jimmi Johnson's daughter ready to get behind wheel

Jimmie Johnson’s next generation is ready to follow his footsteps all the way to the wheel. His name is big and there is no reason why he shouldn’t encourage his kids to carry on with his legacy. The six-time and defending champion of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series has revealed that he has been thinking along with his wife Chandra about putting up a go-kart for their daughter Genevieve, who turns 4 next month. The little girl who is born with the genes of a champion is already seen motoring around in a four wheeler and clearly wants to be like ‘daddy’.

Johnson has clarified this that if ever his daughter showed enough interest, he would never stand in between her desires and would never rule out the possibility of her getting behind the wheel.

"She's a couple of years away from all that yet," he said Friday at Pocono Raceway. "But in our race shop, a lot of our crewmen have their kids in kid karts and driving at various places. So I've considered it. I've served it up to Chani, first of all, making sure she's OK with it. And she's semi-OK with it. And Genevieve is all about it. So hopefully this summer, I'll get a chance to put her in a kart and just see how it goes. She's very responsible on her four-wheeler."

Johnson’s teammate Jeff Gordon recently saw his 6 year old daughter get behind the wheel of a quarter-midget kart for the first time and for him that entire experience was very frightening. "It terrified me. From a parent's standpoint, it's kind of tough to watch them go around there and not have any control of what's going on and know that it's all on them now," Gordon said earlier this week while testing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
