Legacy Motor Club team co-owner Jimmie Johnson says that the the No.84 Carvana Toyota Camry was competitive on Thursday as the seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion made the field for Sunday’s Daytona 500.

We had a really competitive car. This Carvana Toyota Camry was very, very capable in the draft. It was pretty easy to get up to the front and kind of maintain. And, while I was enjoying my position on track, I just knew it was too early, I knew stuff was coming and I knew something would happen. A few things happened after the pit stop that were quite exciting. Thankfully, we were in the right spot at the right time at the checkered flag.”

Johnson was upfront for most of the opening Duel on Thursday evening at Daytona but got caught up in an accident late in the race but managed to get ahead of JJ Yeley to make his 21st start at Daytona.
