Jimmie Johnson teams with Ganassi on 2-year IndyCar program

Jimmie Johnson will work with the Ganassi organization to finalize sponsorship on a two-year program to run the road and street course races on IndyCar's schedule.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Jimmie Johnson will transition from NASCAR to IndyCar with Chip Ganassi Racing in a partnership that could pair two of the most dominant drivers of this generation on one team. 

The seven-time NASCAR champion will work with the Ganassi organization to finalize sponsorship on a two-year program for Johnson to run the road and street course races on IndyCar’s schedule. 

If funding is secured, Johnson would be teammates with five-time IndyCar champion Scott Dixon. 

Johnson first tested an Indy car at Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Ganassi in July.
