IndyCar drivers are at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for testing. During the session, a journalist caught up with 7-time Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson.

Johnson made some interesting comments, including a teaser about a possible return to the NASAR Cup Series with Hendrick Motorsports.

The 46-y-o explained he would only return to NASCAR if the Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval layout was used.

He also explain that he would love a reunion with Hendrick Motorsports.

JJ said, “Honestly, I want to do it with Hendrick Motorsports. The way those rules are written, they can only run four cars. I’ve had a couple of offers, but nothing to really entertain me.”

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

The former HMS driver said that he had received offers from NASCAR, SRX, and off-road. However when asked if the driver had moved beyond his NASCAR racing days, his reply was quite straightforward “No”.
