Usually, it’s snow big problem in New York City. (Sorry, couldn’t resist).

But seriously, folks, New York usually is well equipped to handle whatever Mother Nature can dish out.

Same with six-time Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson. He’s usually ready and willing to handle whatever problems he faces on the track and off.

But when he went out on the streets in New York recently, this is what he came across: a car buried under nearly 30 inches of snow (John F. Kennedy airport in New York reported that at least 27.7 inches had fallen as of Saturday night).

And although this was a problem even his crew chief, Chad Knaus, would have had difficulty solving, it turned out not to be a worry for Johnson. Despite his Twitter post asking, ‘Dude, where’s my car?,’ a Johnson representative later reported that it wasn’t actually Johnson’s vehicle under all that snow.
