Johnson finally names daughter
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson has finally come up with a name for the daughter he'd been calling "Baby J" since her birth earlier this week.
The four-time defending NASCAR champion introduced Genevieve Marie Johnson in a Twitter posting Sunday. The introduction included a photo link of her official birth announcement.
Johnson and his wife, Chandra, welcomed their first child Wednesday but were slow to settle on a name. He finished 25th in Saturday night's race at Chicago and is currently third in the Sprint Cup Series standings.
