The great man from NASCAR is testing the Indy 500 for the first time, which shows Jimmy Johnson’s best chance of success in the single-seat IndyCar series.
I saw the Indianapolis motorway and its 500-mile race. Almost l.
IMS, which has run 2.5 miles since the last lap accident, has a long history since Ray Harrow first won the grand race in 1911.
One thing the Indy 500 has never had is a symbol to dare to take it to change the American motorsport code.
Seven-time NASCAR Cup winners Richard Petty and Dale Ernhardt have never competed in the Indie 500 in their careers, from Petty’s first game in 1958 until his death in 2001.
The other seven watchdogs switched from stock to single-seater racing cars to compete in the Indy 500: Jimmie Johnson.
After a mixed season and a little play at IndyCar since the trophy was exchanged, Johnson didn’t succeed.
However, the 2022 Indy 500 is Jimmy Johnson’s best chance of success at IndyCar.
Johnson to fulfill his childhood dream
Jimmy Johnson became NASCAR at Earnhardt’s post-NASCAR.
He drove the No. 48 Hendrick Chevrolet, winning 83 times in 11 seasons and winning seven titles, including five in a row between 2006 and 2010.
It’s important that Jimmy Johnson is racing in the Indy 500.
It was his childhood dream to race before descending the path marked “NASCAR”, and then during his golden spell, record books were rewritten.
However, since he is married and has daughters, can he justify the risks and rewards and leave them fatherless in the worst case?
No, having a dream of racing in the 500 would be better than racing in everything – after all, he didn’t have to race to prove his point. He did it at NASCAR.
So after finishing the Cup in 2020 and moving to IndyCar, he did not race an oval in 21 years. Too much, too early.
However, for 2022, Johnson is battling a full-season schedule that includes the Indy 500 at IndyCar.
Considering the success of the oval shape, Johnson may surprise one or two.
His oval record
Spending 20 odd years at NASCAR on the Oval, and encountering unfamiliar streets and road bikes every week, let’s not forget that one of Johnson’s skills is not mastered by any racing driver.
Prior to the 2022 Indy 500, Johnson raced 17 times on the IndyCar, 16 of which were on roads and sidewalks he had never seen before.
In the last two races of 2021, Laguna Seka and Long Beach were ranked 17th, with errors, crashes and turns being the best results.
Until 2022 in Texas.
To experience the first taste of the oval race at IndyCar, Johnson overcame the Texas oval race, winning somewhere seven times and leading more than 1,000 laps. He knows it like the back of his hand.
He finished 48th (what other number could there be?) 18th, but performed during the race.
Johnson finished sixth with 21 passes.
If Johnson is cut open, he will bleed into an oval shape. This is his natural habitat.
If Jimmy Johnson is a fish out of the water on the road, then the oval-shaped Johnson and Indie 500 have sharks ready to prey.
Can Jimmy Johnson win the Indy 500?
Like Le Mans 24 Hours, you don’t win the Indy 500, he chooses the winner.
The only thing Johnson can do is put himself in the final position to be controversial.
In the qualifiers, he ran four laps, averaging 232,398 miles per hour, finishing in fifth place and becoming the leading newcomer.
Johnson won the Brickyard 400 four times at IMS between 2006 and 2012 during his NASCAR career. He knows how to take a racing car around Indy and bring P1 home.
Johnson did it properly and didn’t come in under the name ‘Billy KnowItAll’, so Indie Jimmy Johnson thinks he’ll give her $ 500.
After spending the 2021 Indy 500 on an NBC analytics box, Johnson decided 12 months ago that he should race in the motorsport gem category during the selection process.
It was a career with more left turns than right, but in the end Jimmy Johnson was going to take part in a race he had always wanted.
IndyCar’s top team is behind him in Chip Ganassi Racing, so the memories of driving an oval race car will return to this amazing American race.
Then there is only one thing left to decide:
What milk will he give to Victory Lane to successfully participate in the Indy 500?
Like many people before him, he chose whole milk cold and chilly.
