NASCAR star Jimmie Johnson is sitting down out the Brickyard 400 race this weekend following testing good for coronavirus.
According to a assertion unveiled by NASCAR, Johnson is missing Sunday’s race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway because of the analysis. “My very first priority is the wellness and basic safety of my loved types and my teammates,” the 44-yr-aged stated in a team launch. “I’ve under no circumstances skipped a race in my Cup profession, but I know it really is going to be very difficult to look at from the sidelines when I’m meant to be out there competing. Although this condition is extremely disappointing, I am likely to arrive again prepared to win races and place ourselves in playoff competition.”
Jimmie was tested for the virus right after his wife Chandra gained a good diagnosis, in accordance to a NASCAR report. She reportedly seasoned allergy-like indications, though her husband is asymptomatic.
