 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Five-time defending NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson will be on the cover of ``Sports Illustrated'' that goes on sale Wednesday.
It's Johnson's second time on the cover, but only the 10th time Sports Illustrated has featured NASCAR nationally on the front of the magazine.
Johnson says he was unaware of the so-called SI cover jinx and doesn't believe it will factor into whether or not he claims a sixth consecutive title this season. Johnson won Sunday's race at Kansas to move to third in the standings.
Johnson trails leader Carl Edwards by four points with six races remaining in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
Johnson was also on the cover of SI in 2008, near the end of his third title run.
