Catching Up with … Jimmie Johnson

Seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, who competed in 12 of the 16 races in the 2021 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season for Chip Ganassi Racing, turned his first INDYCAR SERIES laps on the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval Wednesday during the Indianapolis 500 Rookie Orientation Program. Q: How different is Turn 1 between a stock car and INDYCAR?. I don’t think it matters what car you’re in, that corner looks like a tighter radius. Way different, but I can I tell I’m not even at the limit of the car. Q: You took a photograph with the car before you got in it. Johnson: I wanted to get a photo of the Indy car I was driving pointed this way (south). Q: Do you remember your first laps here in a Cup car?. There were some other rookies here, and everyone likes to go out and make laps on the track in a rental car.
