7-Time Champion Jimmie Johnson announced via Twitter today that he would be participating in the NTT Indycar Series in 2021 and 2022. His commitment has been reported to be for street and road-course events only with a possibility of running in his first Indianapolis 500 in 2022. Johnson's initial interest in the Indianapolis 500 was limited due to safety but he stated he was impressed with the results of the new aeroscreen on the open-wheeled race cars. No mention of Jimmie's potential part-time future in NASCAR was made during the announcement.
