One of the reasons NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson likes racing on ovals must be that it’s hard to make a wrong turn.

Saturday, while taking part in a triathlon, Johnson did exactly that. He added extra length to the already arduous course, which required a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike ride and a 13.1-mile run, by going the wrong way.


As a result of his wrong turn at the HITS Triathlon Series in Naples, Florida, Johnson’s time was extended but he still finished in the top 15. Fox Sports reported that fellow NASCAR drivers Landon Cassill and Josh Wise not only finished in the top fifteen but won their age divisions as well.
