If not for the pandemic, which caused NASCAR to leave Atlanta Motor Speedway on March 13, [Jimmie] Johnson would be a dozen races into what was supposed to be a farewell tour of sorts, his 19th and final full-time season. Instead, he has run only four races and has no idea what the remaining schedule will be. NASCAR has announced its plans only through May 27.
But while he says that he still has his eye on more racing, specifically IndyCar and sports cars, the parts of the 2020 season lost to the pandemic have not changed his mind about this year’s farewell plans.
“It’s only cemented my decision in making 2020 my last full-time year in Cup. But I still have some plans to race, and hopefully I’m going to have some time to gear up to make some decisions soon on what I can do in ’21 and beyond.”
