Jimmie Johnson and Hendrick Motorsports will donate the No. 48 team’s winnings from Sunday’s Pep Boys Auto 500 to the American Red Cross to support relief efforts for the California Wildfire Relief Fund.
Lowe’s, Johnson’s sponsor, will match the donation. So will Bruton Smith, chairman of Speedway Motorsports.
Johnson grew up in El Cajon, Calif., near San Diego, where there has been extensive damage and large-scale evacuations.
Fans can make donations through the Jimmie Johnson Foundation at JimmieJohnsonFoundation.org.
