Jimmie Johnson and good friend Nick Lachey, left, told The Associated Press on Thursday they have partnered to form the Super Skins Celebrity Golf Classic, which will be held in Scottsdale, Ariz., in conjunction with the Super Bowl in February.
Ironically, it was during a similar celebrity tournament last winter that Johnson fell off a golf cart and broke his wrist. Reports say he was horsing around. Johnson admitted he could be persuaded to board another golf cart for his tournament.
“I might be talked into such a thing, if I can get some bindings to hold me on and make sure I won't fall off,” he joked. “It is for charity, after all.”
“We're going to play chicken on top of the golf carts,” Lachey quickly chimed in.
We're guessing Tony Romo won't be invited.
