Is Jimmie Johnson Retired?

Yes, On November 20, 2019, Johnson announced that the 2020 Cup season would be his last full-time season of racing, although he did not rule out a part-time schedule after that.

“I’ve got a blank sheet of paper, and we can now see what opportunities exist and start making a calendar,” Johnson told The Associated Press.

The 47-year-old won seven NASCAR championships and retired from that series in 2020.

He is an American professional auto racing driver. A seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, he competed full-time in the series from 2002 to 2020, driving the No. 48 Chevrolet with Hendrick Motorsports.

Jimmie was born on September 17, 1975, in El Cajon, California, United States.

His talent was noticed by Hendrick Motorsports driver Jeff Gordon, who convinced owner Rick Hendrick to sign Johnson in the Winston Cup Series full-time for 2002, with Gordon as a part-owner of his car.

The 2020 season started with the Daytona 500 qualifying, he finished 4th for the second year in a row. Later that day, he entered the 2020 Busch Clash as the defending champion.
