UPDATE: Due to Johnson’s positive COVID-19 test, his IndyCar test has been postponed.
ORIGINAL POST: Jimmie Johnson tweeted Monday that he will test an IndyCar next week. Chip Ganassi retweeted Johnson and announced that the test would be Wednesday, July 9 on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.
Johnson has expressed an interest in running an IndyCar after he retires from NASCAR at the end of this season. Earlier this year Johnson competed in the IndyCar iRacing event at virtual Watkins Glen, finishing 16th.
