Jimmie Johnson uses 'Ice Bucket Challenge' to poke fun at Ryan Newman

Jimmie Johnson decided to have a little fun with Ryan Newman after their confrontation at Michigan.

Jimmie Johnson and Ryan Newman had a heated exchange following some on-track contact in the closing laps at Michigan. 

They ended the discussion unresolved and Johnson had some choice words for his rival in an ESPN interview, saying "Anybody who has watched this sport long enough or has been in a race car out there understands the frustration that comes along with racing Ryan."

Well, a few hours after the race, Jimmie took part in the popular 'Ice Bucket Challenge,' but it's what he said in the short video that has everyone talking. He nominates three other people to do it, naming his crew chief Chad Knaus, NASCAR President Mike Helton, and Ryan Newman, citing that 'he may need to cool off a little bit.'
