As we have written many times, one of the very best parts of NASCAR is the philanthropic works the racers do for others.

A good case in point is seven-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, who is very active in education.

Johnson is raffling off one of the hottest production cars in the world, a 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 convertible trimmed in silver paint over a black interior.

Raffle tickets are $48 each and only 4,848 tickets will be sold, with proceeds benefitting the Jimmie Johnson Foundations current programs supporting K-12 public education.

And it was pretty cool what Johnson did to show off this hot rod to a young fan.
