CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The week just keeps getting better for NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson.

Just two days after he won at the Martinsville Speedway, Johnson is slated to be a father - again.

Johnson announced on his Twitter account Tuesday morning that he and his wife, Chandra, are expecting another child.

"We are so happy to share news that we're having another baby in September," he tweeted on Tuesday morning. "Genevieve is so excited to be a big sister!"

Genevieve is the Johnsons' only child, who will be 3-years-old in July.

Johnson led a career-best 346 laps on Sunday at Martinsville and pulled away on a restart with eight laps to go for his eighth career victory on the shortest track in the Sprint Cup Series.
