Jimmie Johnson takes wrong turn, makes triathlon even longer

As if participating in a triathlon wasn't difficult enough

On Saturday, Jimmie Johnson took part in the HITS Triathlon Series in Naples, Florida. The "HITS Half" event calls for a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike ride and a 13.1-mile run.

Unfortunately for Johnson, his day took a little longer. He took a wrong turn.  

Fellow NASCAR drivers Landon Cassill and Josh Wise also participated in the event. All three drivers finished in the top 15 overall and Cassill and Wise each won their age group. Impressive.
