Jimmie Johnson will test with Chip Ganassi’s IndyCar team July 8 at IMS

Leigh Diffey is joined by Townsend Bell and Kyle Petty, as they discuss the significance of the upcoming NASCAR-IndyCar crossover event at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the similarities that the two series share.

Seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson announced Monday that he would test with Chip Ganassi Racing’s IndyCar team. Team owner Chip Ganassi later confirmed in a tweet that the test will take place July 8 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.

A Chip Ganassi Racing spokesman said the team is allowed a test session for Johnson in one of its Dallara-Hondas under IndyCar rules that permit driver evaluation tests.

Johnson will be racing Sunday on the 2.5-mile oval at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in The Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400 (4 p.m. ET, NBC), a day after the track’s road course plays host to the NTT IndyCar Series’ IndyCar GMR Grand Prix (noon ET, NBC) and the Pennzoil 150 Xfinity Series race (3 p.m. ET, NBC) at the Brickyard.
