Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Jimmie Johnson who drives for Hendrick Motorsports has announced that the 2020 season will be his last as a full-time Cup driver.
Speaking about the news, Chairman and CEO of NASCAR James France said:
NASCAR history will always hold Jimmie Johnson in the highest regard, for his hard-charging success on the racetrack and the way he conducted himself as a champion off the track. This remarkable seven-time champion – through his competitive spirit, immense talent and sportsmanship – has made NASCAR a better sport. On behalf of my family and the entire NASCAR community, I thank Jimmie for his dedication to NASCAR and, along with his legions of fans, wish him all the best in his final season. I look forward to watching him race for wins and an eighth NASCAR Cup Championship in 2020.”
