Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race, the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway was a very special one for the Jimmie Johnson Foundation who launched their Team JJF VISOR Campaign.
Jimmie’s fellow drivers wear a specially designed visor strip to help raise awareness of the work of the Jimmie Johnson. Participating drivers sign their visors, and the visors will be put up for auction the week of November 2nd.
Also up for auction is Jimmie’s brand new 2021 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 convertible. The entries for that run until November 30.

The other events that the JJ Foundation are supporting are:
The Blue Bunny Helmet of Hope program invites individuals to nominate a non-profit organization that directly supports K-12 public education for the opportunity to receive a $25,000 grant, a Blue Bunny Ice Cream party, and to have their logo featured on Jimmie’s helmet during a 2020 NASCAR Cup Series race. In addition, this year non-profits that provide services to school-age students, which have been directly impacted by the Covid-19 crisis, were also eligible to be nominated. A total of 5 organizations are selected as 2020 Blue Bunny Helmet of Hope grant recipients via a public vote! Information about this year’s grant recipients can be found at helmetofhope.org. Since the Blue Bunny Helmet of Hope program launched in 2008, more than $1.4 million has been awarded to 131 charities.
Champions Grant program is an opportunity for K-12 public schools in select districts in the Johnsons hometowns and where they currently live to apply for between $20,000 and $75,000 to help them address their critical needs. Since 2009, more than $5.8 million has been awarded for 134 different projects. The 2020 grant recipients will be announced by December 31.
The Jimmie Johnson Foundation was set up in 2009 by the seven time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion and is dedicated to assisting children, families and communities in need throughout the United States. Since 2009, the focus of the Foundation has been to support K-12 public education. We do this through our grant programs, including the Blue Bunny Helmet of Hope and Champions Grant program.
