MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Sunday night at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Jimmie Johnson won the Ford EcoBoost 400 to score his record-tying seventh NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship.

The celebration went long into the night at the track, with Johnson saying on Twitter that he only got “an hour of sleep” but that he “should be good” as he basked in the glow of a historic achievement.

When he got home, however … he found that his friends had done a little celebrating too, at his expense, no less.

Johnson posted a photo on Twitter of the job done to roll his house in recognition of his win at Homestead and seventh title. (Luckily, he also took the whole thing in good fun, giving a nod to those involved.)

Two thoughts come to mind:

First, that’s a lot of toilet paper.

Second, to echo the words of the now-seven-time champion: well done, indeed.
