Jimmie Johnson makes his INDYCAR oval debut, plus Scott Dixon, Pato O’Ward and NASCAR’s Daniel Suarez
This week’s Pit Pass Indy revs up with a preview of the XPEL 375 at Texas Motor Speedway, the first INDYCAR oval race of the 2022 season. It will also be the first time Jimmie Johnson drives an Indy car on an oval.
It’s a chance for the 46-year-old Johnson to display what he did best as a seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion. Johnson won a NASCAR-record seven races at Texas Motor Speedway in a career that began in 2002 and ended at the end of the 2021 season. His track-record seven wins rank fourth among his career victories at a single track (Dover-11, Martinsville-9, Charlotte-8) and no other Cup driver has won more than four at Texas.
Johnson also owns the track’s series records for consecutive wins (3), laps led (1,152) and top-five finishes (16) in 35 career starts.
Pit Pass Indy host Bruce Martin has an exclusive interview with Johnson.
Also on this week’s show is five-time Texas Motor Speedway IndyCar race winner Scott Dixon of Chip Ganassi Racing.
In a special feature, Pit Pass Indy host Bruce Martin interviews two drivers from Monterrey, Mexico who remain close friends despite competing in different racing series. It’s INDYCAR’s Pato O’Ward and NASCAR Cup Series driver Daniel Suarez.
