A day after winning his 11th NASCAR Cup race at the Dover International Speedway, Jimmie Johnson underwent skin cancer surgery.
Johnson informed the public via twitter that he was having “a Basal Cell Carcinoma cut out of my shoulder.”
Wear sunblock kids. I've spent the morning on a table having Basal Cell Carcinoma cut out of my shoulder.
