In addition, Dollar Tree and Family Dollar will sponsor the part-time entry for co-owner Jimmie Johnson at Dover Motor Speedway (April), Kansas Speedway (September) and Las Vegas Motor Speedway (October).

“What an exciting time for Legacy M.C. to team up with Dollar Tree and Family Dollar,” Johnson said in a team release. “We look forward to creating extensive visibility for these two iconic and beloved brands where we have so many fans in common.”

The announcement gives Johnson and the No. 84 six scheduled races for 2024. Previously, the team announced starts at Texas Motor Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway and the May Kansas event.

To my mind Jimmie has already added three more races to his schedule for this year and with sponsorship from dollar tree/family dollar as well as advent health but I’m expecting that he will add a few more races to his schedule.

I am blown away by the lack of attention a 7 time champion, all around good guy gets. Too clean and too good I guess.
