It’s great to see the happy faces on young fans when they meet their heroes in real life. One young fan got the ride of a lifetime with his hero Jimmie Johnson in a Corvette Z06 that will be raffled to support Johnson’s non-profit foundation.
But Jimmie didn’t just cruise around the block with Tyler, who is dealing with some health issues. Jimmie asks him what he wants to do in the new Corvette “with very low miles”. Tyler responds “Go fast?” but Jimmie counters him by asking if he want’s some donuts. Tyler is slightly confused at the question, probably wondering why Jimmie was offering him a snack as they were driving around a parking lot in the 650-hp convertible.
But that confusion didn’t last long as Jimmie cranks the wheel and steps on the gas, whipping the Z06 in a few circles while tire smoke and Tyler’s shrieks of joy fill the air. “That was awesome” says the young man as the car comes to a halt.
Jimmie is offering the Blade Silver Corvette Z06 Convertible as the grand prize in a raffle benefiting the Jimmie Johnson Foundation. The Foundation is offering only 4,848 tickets at a price of $48 each. Tickets will be available through November 20th or until they sell out. Jimmie will personally hand the keys to the winner at a ceremony in Charlotte and the foundation will even pay the winner’s taxes! Click here to get your raffle tickets!
