NASCAR: Johnson to drive for Moss at Bristol

Associated Press
BRISTOL, Tenn. ó Jimmie Johnson, coming off his win in the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard, has added a pair of races to his 2008 schedule.
Johnson will make his Truck Series debut in Bristol on Aug. 20 ó driving for NFL star Randy Moss. Johnson will drive the No. 81 Kobalt Tools Silverado fielded by Randy Moss Motorsports. Johnson also will drive the No. 48 Loweís Chevrolet fielded by Dale Earnhardt Jr.ís JR Motorsports in the Nationwide Series race at Watkins Glen on Aug. 9.
In the Nationwide Series, Johnson has made 88 starts, with his only victory coming in 2001 at Chicagoland.
iWatkins Glen and Bristol are two tracks where I really want a win,î Johnson said. iI enjoy racing (on the road course) at Watkins Glen and, for some reason, always seem to be a little better there than Sonoma. Weíve had some top-fives, so, hopefully this will put us in the win column.
iAs for the trucks, I am really looking forward to that. I have never run a truck race, so it should be fun. Heck, my brother Jarit has run more than me. But itís going to be a good time.î
