Chip Ganassi Racing have confirmed that they are exploring a full time road and street course NTT IndyCar Series programme for 2021 and 22 for seven time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson who was confirmed as a Chip Ganassi Racing driver on Wednesday.

Speaking about the news Johnson said:

When I tested Chip’s Indy car earlier in the year, it only lit the fire more. I found that I wanted to do it more than ever before. Scott [Dixon] was just incredible to work with and in a short time I found out very quickly why Chip and his teams have won 12 INDYCAR Championships. As part of a natural progression, I wanted to publicly show the alignment with Chip Ganassi Racing to kick the sponsorship program into high gear. The goal is to run the full road and street program and today is a very important first step in accomplishing that goal.”
