As much as I mock Jimmie Johnson for being boring, I can’t deny that the guy is living the dream, and that dream is pretty exciting. Johnson has won three straight titles and is closing in on a fourth. He works for perhaps the best organization in sports. He gets to meet presidents and hang with celebrities. And he did what all successful stock car drivers are supposed to do – he married a model.

Chandra Johnson, formerly Chandra Janway, was introduced to Johnson by Jeff Gordon in 2002. Jimmie and "Chani" married in 2004. (No, Johnson doesn’t waste time anywhere.) Chandra, 31, manages the Jimmie Johnson Foundation. That’s her you see by Jimmie’s side before and after every race.
