TALLADEGA, AL – Seven-time NASCAR champion and two-time Talladega Superspeedway winner, Jimmie Johnson, is set to again host an exclusive Kids Question & Answer Session as part of the incredible Jimmie Johnson Family Ticket Package at NASCAR’s Most Competitive track on the morning of the GEICO 500 on Sunday, May 7.

This special family ticket package provides a unique race morning experience for the kids prior to watching 40 of the sport’s most talented drivers try and tackle Talladega from the most comfortable seats in NASCAR, located in the Talladega Grandstand. The Jimmie Johnson Family Ticket Package includes all the following:

  • $48 ticket(s) for adults and $24 ticket(s) for children (12-and-younger) for the GEICO 500

  • The opportunity to attend the one-of-a-kind Kids Q&A session with Jimmie on Sunday morning, May 7

In addition to the Kids Q&A session, the youngsters will participate in hands-on activities during a special learning program, led by NASA’s trained educators. The focus will be centered on aerodynamics, grip, speed and other key racing elements used in NASCAR. The lessons will help demonstrate the relationship between NASA and motorsports. Each kid who attends the Q&A will also receive a four-color Jimmie Johnson NASA Rockets to Racecars activity book centered on STEM education.

Johnson, who joined Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt Sr. as the only drivers to win seven Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championships with his title in 2016, has captured two checkered flags at Talladega Superspeedway. In addition to his win in 2006, his triumph in 2011 over Clint Bowyer by just .002 seconds holds the closest finish in NASCAR history.
