Jimmie Johnson who is currently racing IndyCar full-time, including his first Indianapolis 500 was recently asked about a possible return to NASCAR, the 46-y-o boldly admitted that he’s open to do it.

Johnson discussed numerous subjects, including his race at ‘The 24 Hours of Daytona’ and other potential races he might pursue in 2022.

The former HMS driver said that he had received offers from NASCAR, SRX, and off-road. However when Gluck asked if the driver had moved beyond his NASCAR racing days,  his reply was quite straightforward .

“No, I’m open to it. I’d love to go back. But with this full-time IndyCar, full-time endurance sports car schedule, I just don’t see how,” Johnson admitted. He also acknowledged that he missed NASCAR and its fans the most.

In 12 races, Johnson managed five top-20 finishes, including the season opener in Alabama. However, his performance steadily improved, as evidenced by his results in the season’s final four races when he finished in the top 20 each time, including a tie for his season-best finish of 17th in the final two races at Laguna Seca and Long Beach.
