Seven-time champion is set to make his transition from the NASCAR Cup series to IndyCar after the end of the 2020 season.

The 45-year-old already has a deal with Chip Ganassi Racing in place for two years, and he also has Carvana as a primary sponsor for his IndyCar stint.

The deal will see Johnson competing in 13 IndyCar races in 2021.

When asked about the track he is looking forward to the most, Johnson replied:

“I’d say Long Beach is probably the one I’m most excited for just with my days of hanging on the fence, being there in person. It was always a weekend where I was able to check with Chevrolet folks, know what was next for me in my career. There’s sentimental value to that race.”

Another track that Johnson said he would love to race is Laguna Seca for its famous corners, the Corkscrew.

“Then keeping it on the west coast. Monterey, I’ve always wanted to run Laguna Seca. Thought someday I would be there, get to experience the corkscrew. That didn’t happen until Chip was willing to accept this crazy opportunity and crazy idea. I get to go there now.”
