Celebrating the astonishing career and life of American race-car driver and consecutive NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson.

In the storied history of NASCAR auto racing, American race-car driver Jimmie Johnson is one of the most accomplished and decorated professional athletes of his era and the only race-car driver ever to be named Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year. His historic seven NASCAR Cup Series championship titles are shared with NASCAR Hall of Famers Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt as the most of all time.

One More Lap memorializes the record-breaking career of this extraordinary athlete, who began racing motocross at five years old with a laser focus on becoming a racing champion. By 2002, Johnson was competing in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series and began to capture the imagination of racing fans across the globe. Over the course of his career, Johnson recorded 83 wins, 232 top-five finishes, 374 top-ten finishes, and 36 pole positions en route to seven championships, including five in a row from 2006 to 2010.

Johnson began exploring his passion for art and photography by hiring photographers such as Andrew Moore and Pari Dukovic to record behind the scenes at many of his races. With a foreword from sports legend Michael Jordan, this volume captures photographs from Johnson’s early life and the beginning of his illustrious career and features exhilarating racing snapshots by renowned photographers Sebastian Kim and Peggy Sirota, as well as images taken Johnson himself. Revelatory, inspiring, and truly thrilling, Johnson’s story will appeal to NASCAR enthusiasts, sports lovers, photography fans, and anyone interested in the story of a childhood dream that came true.
Jimmie Johnson is an American professional auto-racing driver. Ivan Shaw produces art photography books. Michael Jordan is an American businessman and former professional basketball player.
