When John Hunter Nemechek announced he would be racing for Jimmie Johnson starting in 2024, Johnson mentioned that he will not be racing again in 2023, but he did not rule out anything in 2024. This got us thinking, what are some races we would love to see Jimmie Johnson do in 2024?

1. Daytona 500

Why not have Seven Time Series Champion and two-time winner of the Daytona 500 run in the event again? Johnson’s run at Daytona this year was easily the best of the few races he ran this year, and he could have had a solid finish had he not gotten caught up in a late accident. It is the biggest race of the year, so having one of NASCAR’s most accomplished drivers of all-time in the race makes it all the more interesting.

2. Martinsville

Jimmie Johnson was nothing short of incredible at Martinsville Speedway throughout his career. He won nine races in his career at Martinsville, which is tied for third all-time at the track with his mentor, Jeff Gordon. If Johnson did run at this race track, the spring race would be the best race to run so that his program does not distract from a potential Playoff run.

3. Clash at the Coliseum

A Southern California kid making a return to racing in Southern California sounds perfect, doesn’t it? With Auto Club Speedway off the schedule, the closest track to Johnson’s hometown is the LA Coliseum. Yes, it is a non-points event, but that means less pressure on the race team, which makes it a great place to let Johnson have some fun in his home state.

4. Dover

An eleven-time winner at the race track, Jimmie Johnson has the most wins of anybody at the track, so, why not give him another opportunity to run there? It would be cool to see Johnson run just one more time at the race track that he seemingly owned for a large part of his career. Now that it is down to only one race per year, maybe that could be a major boost for that track, and that spring date is the perfect time for Johnson to make a start with the Playoffs not in the picture that time of year.

5. Southern 500

The one “Crown Jewel” race that Johnson did not run in this year. It is the place where Johnson scored Hendrick Motorsports’ 200th career win after all in 2012. It being the first race of the Playoffs may be the biggest deterrent to him running this race, but it would still be fun to see Johnson run in one of the most iconic races in all of the sport.

Johnson may only run a few races next year, but it would be cool to see him run again. If he runs any of these races, the question becomes, how high will he finish?
