Jimmie Johnson has a spot in the Busch Clash if he wants it and if a team wants him.

“I haven’t had a stock-car phone call yet,” Johnson said. “Plenty of other ones but not a stock-car one.”
“I don’t think [I’d do it] right now,” he said. “Just in pure transparency, I need to not drive a stock car for a while to really re-program my senses in my brain to drive downforce.
