Jimmie Johnson Foundation Helmet of Hope 2009

In support of the 3rd Annual Jimmie Johnson Foundation Golf Tournament to be held Oct. 7 in San Diego, the foundation once again will sponsor the Helmet of Hope. The initiative allows six race fans and six media members the opportunity to have their charity of choice featured on Johnson's race helmet. The helmet will be worn in the October Sprint Cup race at Auto Club Speedway where Johnson, the defending winner of the race, will drive a specially designed No. 48 Jimmie Johnson Foundation/Lowe's Impala SS.

To nominate your favorite charity go to: www.jimmiejohnsonfoundation.org/Helmet-of-Hope-Media-Submission.a spx.

New to the program this year, the foundation will donate $1,048 to each selected charity and distribute 100% of the proceeds from a special Helmet of Hope t-shirt between the organizations. The t-shirt will feature each charity's logo and is on sale now at www.jimmiejohnsonfoundation.org.
