Jimmie Johnson offered a sensational return to the Cup Series in 2022

Reports have emerged that Jimmie Johnson has been offered a Cup Series ride for the 2022 season.

The seven-time Cup Series champion bid farewell to the sports at the end of the 2020 season in order to pursue his dream of racing in the IndyCar series.

It was a planned end to his Cup career but with the COVID-19 pandemic at large during the season, fans could not witness him racing in the Cup Series for the final time through the stands. While in a turn of events, the Cup Series might not have seen the last of Johnson.

Adam Stern of Sports Business Journal reported that Johnson “has had some NASCAR teams reach out about possible interest in driving, whether in a one-off or full time.”

Johnson has always maintained that he could return to the Cup Series for some races. However, the problem is that he is participating in all road course races which will take up most of his time in the 2022 season.

The report also indicates that Johnson returning to the Cup Series in 2022 is very unlikely as “his 2022 schedule is looking likely to be full of IndyCar/IMSA.”

Johnson is still pushing for his desire to run the Indianapolis 500. He seems very happy in his decision to quit NASCAR for IndyCar. But that doesn’t mean that he would not return to NASCAR. It is highly unlikely that he will do a full time in the Cup Series again, but the possibility of making a couple of appearances before he completely retires from racing is not a far-fetched idea.

  1. I really really hope jimmie goes back to nascar racing. Even just 1 or 2 races. Please let one be the brickyard. Jimmie johnson fan 4 ever.

    1. Are you dumb if he wins another Championship he makes history most Championships ever. If that’s me or any other racer there going balls to the wall for that 8th till I’m old enough to where I can’t. Whatever

  2. Jimmie has nothing to prove! He needs to enjoy his family & wealth before he ends up like Ryan Newman.
