Three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson and his wife, Chandra Johnson, will be hosting the ‘Night of Champions’ to benefit the Jimmie Johnson Foundation at (PIR) Phoenix International Raceway’s luxury lounge, Octane, on Thursday, April 16, to help children and families in Arizona and beyond.
‘Night of Champions’ gives fans the chance to mingle with Jimmy as well as participate in an exclusive charity auction during the event.
This is the second year in a row that that the track and the Jimmie Johnson Foundation have partnered for the April 16 NASCAR Camping World Series West race at PIR, which will be named the Jimmie Johnson Foundation 150 Presented by Shamrock Farms.
“I really give the track a lot of credit for this partnership idea,” said Johnson. “It’s a great way that we can raise awareness and funds for our foundation. At the same time, Chani and I are thrilled to be making a contribution to a very important local charity. We hope the children who benefit from the services of West Valley Child Crisis Center will have a chance to join us for a night of fun and racing at the Jimmie Johnson Foundation 150.”
The Jimmie Johnson Foundation is dedicated to assisting children, families, and communities in need. The foundation aims to help everyone, especially children, pursue their dreams. The partner programs for the Jimmie Johnson Foundation include San Diego Habitat For Humanity, the Hendrick Marrow Program, the Victory Junction Gang, and Phoenix-based Make-A-Wish Foundation of America.
Tickets for the “Night of Champions” are currently available and include fine food and drink, an amazing view of the NASCAR Camping World Series West racing action at PIR, and a chance to meet one of NASCAR’s top stars, all while contributing to the health and wellness of children and families in need.
