Teammates Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. have something else in common now. Both are among the driver nominees for this year's ESPY awards, the USA Today reports.
The six-time champion has been nominated in two categories, best championship performance and for best driver. Earnhardt joins Johnson in the nominations for best driver category. If the Hendrick Motorsports star picks up the trophy for best driver, it will be his fifth ESPY win in that category.
