After his ride swap with Fernando Alonso on Monday, Jimmie Johnson said he'd be up for an INDYCAR race or two in the future.
“Without a doubt,” Johnson, the seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, said, according to Motorsport. “2020 is my last year under contract with Hendrick (Motorsports), and I’ve been approached many times about the Indy 500.
“I’m not overly excited about those fast ovals, but I think with my status and relationships I could put together some road course races in INDYCAR.
“I’ve done sports car racing in the past, I’ve finished second in the Rolex 24 a couple of times in the Prototype division, I’d love to get back to doing that. Anything’s open.
“I’m far from done, I want to keep driving and hopefully I can find some good opportunities.”
Johnson seemed to enjoy himself in the 2013 MP4-28 McLaren-Mercedes Formula One car, while Alonso took Johnson's No. 48 Chevrolet for a spin.
Though he hasn't raced open-wheel cars on a circuit, we think Johnson could find a spot pretty quickly if he wanted to.
