NASCAR welcomes back Jimmie Johnson officially as a part of Petty GMS

Seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson has made a comeback to stock car racing two years after giving up full-time NASCAR competition as well as a few 

months after giving up full-time racing competition in general. According to a prior announcement made earlier this week, Johnson will join Petty GMS as a

part-owner and driver. The Daytona 500, which Johnson has already won twice, will be the first race on his part-time schedule. 

There are no upcoming events, however Johnson has previously shown interest in running in the Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600 on the same day, or "the double."

If rules could be modified to permit excellent part-time drivers like Johnson and Indianapolis qualifying duties do not get in the way,

 he might possibly take part in the much awaited Indianapolis 500. In addition to his NASCAR starts, Johnson is still a candidate for a spot in the 2023 Indianapolis 500.

It's also expected that Johnson would participate in the Garage56 stock car program at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Johnson stated during this year's Petit Le Mans that his part-time IMSA program with Cadillac for 2021 and 2022 has been put on hold due to the

 brand's extremely low supply of its new LMDh-spec prototype; nevertheless, the program may resume in 2024.
