Jimmie Johnson is set to make a return the No. 84 Legacy Motor Club Toyota for 2024 NASCAR.
According to the Legacy Motor Club’s announcement on Tuesday, seven-time Nascar Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson is scheduled to race in a minimum of three events in 2024.
Johnson will receive three race sponsorships from AdventHealth, which has previously worked with Chip Ganassi Racing and Trackhouse Racing. Meanwhile, Erik Jones’ No. 43 car will also be sponsored by the healthcare company for six races in 2024.
“This is a wonderful day for Legacy M.C.,” Johnson said. “AdventHealth believes health should be measured in terms of the whole person — body, mind and spirit.
“This partnership is a natural fit for our club and I know we will do great things together.
“I can’t wait for this season to get started.”
Johnson is scheduled to compete in three different races this year: the AdventHealth 400 at Kansas Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway. On the other hand, Jones’ Daytona 500 car will be branded with the brand colors.
“We are thrilled to partner with Legacy Motor Club and drivers Erik Jones and Jimmie Johnson and are looking forward to a winning 2024 race season,” president and CEO of AdventHealth Terry Shaw said.
“AdventHealth has been a sponsor in the sport since 2015 and we appreciate the opportunity to provide care for this team and the passionate Nascar fan base.
“Together, we can make a tremendous impact in our communities and ensure more people have the opportunity to access whole-person care.”
Ross Chastain was sponsored by AdventHealth for nine races in 2022 and six races in 2023.
According to NBC Sports pundit Dustin Long, Johnson is likely going to race in the Chicago Street Race, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval and the 2024 Daytona 500. However, the team’s schedule, which was made public on Tuesday, left out the races.
Legacy Motor Club, along with Joe Gibbs Racing, will become a part of the Toyota Racing family in 2024. JGR’s John Hunter Nemechek will drive the No. 42 car in 2024.
Johnson will be driving a car that isn’t a Chevrolet for the first time in his Cup career when he makes his 2024 season debut. In 2023, Johnson made three starts with Legacy Motor Club driving a car backed by Club Wyndham and Carvana.
