NASCAR Champion Jimmie Johnson tests positive for COVID-19

Seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the Brickyard 400.

The 44-year old driver is the first driver in any NASCAR series to test positive for the pandemic. Hendrick Motorsports reports Johnson will not return until he’s cleared by a physician. Johnson was non-symptomatic at the time of testing and was tested after his wife tested positive for the disease.

Justin Allgaier will replace Johnson in the No. 48 this Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
