Jimmie Johnson has proven once again that he's a true athlete, both inside and outside of his No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet.

In a sprint triathlon held by the Jimmie Johnson Foundation at the Cane Creek State Park in Waxhaw, North Carolina Tuesday evening, the six-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion placed first in his age group, finishing the 500-yard swim, 13-mile bike ride and 5K run with a time of 1:08:35.9.

Johnson's foundation focuses on funding for K-12 public education and is dedicated to helping children and families in need throughout the United States.
