Jimmie Johnson will contest the full 2022 NTT IndyCar Series season in 2022, he announced Dec. 15.
Johnson will drive the Carvana-sponsored No. 48 for Chip Ganassi Racing, with his slate including his first attempt at the Indianapolis 500.
“I’m going #FullTime next year!” Johnson tweeted. “I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the @Carvana machine for the full @INDYCAR season, including the #Indy500. #NoFinishLines.”
The news follows a 2021 season where Johnson ran 12 IndyCar races, with a best finish of 17th twice in his final two starts of the year.
Carvana will sponsor the No. 48 in 16 of the 17 races, with American Legion filling the other event at Iowa Speedway.
