CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — Jimmie Johnson proved he can do more than win NASCAR races.

The six-time Sprint Cup champion won the 35-39 age group at the Over The Mountain Triathlon in Kings Mountain on Saturday hours before heading to Charlotte Motor Speedway to compete in the NASCAR All-Star race.

Johnson finished 11th overall out of 119 male participants with a time of 2 hours, 30 minutes, 7 seconds.

Johnson says "I'm so stoked, so stoked."

Johnson expected to get some rest when he returned home, but wife Chandra had other ideas.

He says: "I walked into (my wife) saying 'It's been a frustrating morning, here ya go.' So I got the two kids and got in the pool. I took a shower in my swimming pool."

Johnson's bib number? Well, No. 48, of course.
