It took the full human gestation period plus four days post-birth for Jimmie and Chandra Johnson to name their baby girl.

Chandra gave birth to the couple's first child this past Wednesday.

In a twitter posting this Sunday following an abysmal run for Johnson at Chicagoland Speedway, the first daughter's name was revealed.

The four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion seems to have remained loyal to the company that his team is aligned with, General Motors.

The young daughter was given the name of Genevieve Marie, or "GM" for short.

Having gone with "Baby J" as the temporary name, the Johnsons had to provide a name on the birth certificate before leaving the hospital.

Driving a Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports has proven to be very fruitful for Johnson.

The fame and fortune garnered by the driver of the Lowe's No. 48 Chevrolet Impala should provide well for baby "GM."
