“I’m so proud to represent Carvana for a second NASCAR season, and our fourth season overall as partners, at some of my favorite races,” Johnson said in a team release. “Carvana is a fun brand that captures the joy of cars and racing and they do a great job leveraging their partnership with Legacy MC. I’m excited to have a shot at another Daytona 500 trophy in our new Toyota Camry XSEs and the paint scheme is sure to be a fan favorite.”

To date, Johnson now has nine races scheduled for 2024, all in the part-time No. 84.

In 2023, he competed in three events, with a best finish of 31st in the Daytona 500.

9 races I’m a JJ fan but realize he was only good driving one style of cup cars and he had Chad. Switching to Toyota but it’s the same car he wasn’t good in since he retired. I wonder how good he’s going to be in top notch Toyotas. Maybe he can at least compete higher up. No way he wins a race. Wonder what his salary is for 9 races ! I bet he will do very well money wise. 7 time champion.

All he is really doing is having fun and lowering his career average finish.

I hope that Jimmie Johnson will do well in his second season back in NASCAR and one of these days I will probably attend the brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in July and it’s been five years since the last time he raced at the iconic track.
