Jimmie Johnson took on the Boston Marathon, and his peers took notice.
Several of them, including 2019 winners Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin, took to social media to congratulate the seven-time series champion on his showing in Monday’s 26.2-miler.
Considered one of the most prestigious marathons in the world, Johnson — who had been training for months and started his run just 36 hours after racing at Richmond — logged a time of 3 hours, 9 minutes and 7 seconds.
From Kyle Larson in a baby stroller to his post-race brews, here’s what NASCAR Nation was saying after Johnson’s epic run.
