Johnson: I can't be doing any of that, especially with a girlfriend.
SI: What athlete would you trade places with for one day?
Johnson: [F/1 driver] Michael Schumacher. I'd love to go out and cut some laps in his car.
SI: Why do NASCAR drivers always wear shades? Is it merely to look cool?
Johnson: Looking cool is partly involved; so is blocking out the sun. But the other thing is, you can hide behind them and not have to make eye contact with anyone.
SI: Your mom drove a school bus, your dad drove a truck, your brother Jarit raced trucks and now another brother, Jessie, drives for a Bandolero team that you own. Who's the best driver in the Johnson clan?
Johnson: For general street driving, I'd have to say my mom. She was responsible for lives on the school bus. Me? I only know how to turn left.
