According to the Associated Press, Shawn Johnsonhas had a rather busy week. After winning Dancing With The Stars, she headed over to the Lowe’s Motor Speedway to hang out with driver Bobby Allison before attending the Coca-Cola 600. Keep reading for full details and also hear what Shawn has to say about the upcoming Olympics…
Shawn won four medals at the Beijing Olympics last summer, but she told AP that she wasn’t sure if she can commit to the London Olympics quite yet. “Once I go home and this settles down, I’ll get back into training and start getting back into shape and seeing where that takes me. As for 2012, I haven’t made a decision yet,” she said. “I don’t really think I’m in a position to make a decision,” she continued. “Not until I’m in shape and competing again.”
On Saturday she was at Charlotte, riding as a passenger with former driver Kyle Petty in her first trip to a NASCAR track. He actually got to 170 mph. I was squealing I guess. I couldn’t even hear myself,” Johnson said. “They said they played it back and I hit another note every time he shifted.” After doing a backflip off a car, she said, “I stuck the landing.”
On Sunday, Shawn wasn’t quite able to jack a car, but did change a tire and put gas in a car before posing for pictures with the three-time race champion Allison in a promotion with Coca-Cola. She watched the race before heading to San Francisco for a charity event with former champion Kristi Yamaguchi.
