Charlotte Bobcats will honor six-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson

   The Charlotte Bobcats announced that the team’s game against the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday, Feb. 11, will be presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina and the evening will  be highlighted by an in-game presentation recognizing six-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson of Hendrick Motorsports.
   As part of Blue Cross and Blue Shield Night, every fan that shows their BCBSNC insurance card at the box office within 2 hours of tip-off will receive a discounted ticket to the game: $35 lower-level seats and $10 upper-level seats. In recognition of Johnson’s success, the Bobcats will play a video tribute highlighting Johnson’s 2013 achievements and he will be honored with an on-court presentation by the team.
   “We are thrilled to recognize Jimmie Johnson and Hendrick Motorsports on their championship,” said Bobcats Sports & Entertainment President & COO Fred Whitfield. “He and his team continue to work hard to maintain a certain level of success on and off the track.
   "The work Jimmie Johnson, Hendrick Motorsports and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina do throughout our community is phenomenal and we are proud to partner with such great organizations who continue to be a strong presence throughout the Carolinas.”
