Johnson Eager To Find Familiar Groove on Texas Oval

Jimmie Johnson has been uncomfortable over the last year, competing in a new race car on new racetracks that feature a new racing style. Johnson’s last oval race came Nov. 8, 2020, at Phoenix Raceway. Still, Johnson will enter next weekend’s race with a level of comfort he didn’t have last year in INDYCAR: previous experience. Johnson had never competed on any of the tracks he raced on in 2021, which added an extra layer to his learning curve. And while the 23rd-place finish didn’t show it, Johnson was proud of his performance. Based on his level of excitement after his first oval test at Texas last summer, Dixon thinks Johnson will fit in just fine.
