Seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson says that he hopes that his two years competition in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES with Chip Ganassi Racing competing on street courses will be beneficial to him as the NASCAR Cup Series heads to Chicago.
Speaking following the reveal of the new livery of the No.84 Carvana Chevrolet, Jimmie Johnson commented saying:
“I’m really looking forward to the Chicago Street course. “Since they announced this event it has been circled on my calendar. Our new Carvana paint scheme is really cool as well, it’s a fresh look and they did a great job with the design. For the last two years all I’ve really done in INDYCAR is race on street courses so I am hoping that experience on this type of course is helpful and translates over to the NASCAR side. This course is a clean slate to the series, the city and NASCAR are putting a ton of effort into making this a huge weekend and a great experience. I’m looking forward to it.”
The upcoming street circuit is tapped as one of the blue ribboned events of the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season, and speaking about the new paint scheme that Jimmie will run with on July 2, Ryan Keeton, Carvana Co-Founder and Chief Brand Officer, said:
“A brand new paint scheme in time for Chicago’s hottest event of the summer is very fitting. “In the spirit of #NoFinishLines, Jimmie’s return to the track with LEGACY MOTOR CLUB has been both momentous and nostalgic, and we’re excited to champion these qualities in the latest design of the Carvana No. 84 Chevy.”
