It’s a side rarely seen from Mr. Vanilla himself Jimmie Johnson. The driver, who won his second Daytona 500 this past Sunday, is known as a cool, calm customer in front of the cameras. So much so that he is known as Mr. Vanilla. Well Mr. Vanilla melted a bit Sunday night after his Daytona 500 victory and the results were shown to the world Tuesday.

Long after the stands had cleared and the media had departed Sunday night, Johnson and his Hendrick Motorsports crew pulled the No. 48 hauler onto the finish line.

“We wanted to get our transporter out there and take a victory photo, ’cause it’s kind of cool,” crew chief Chad Knaus told the NASCAR Wire Service. “It’s a cool backdrop, and one of the pit crew guys jumped up and he’s like, ‘Hey, let’s do the Harlem Shake!'” MORE>>>
