well, he said he wouldn't bother if he'd find himself well off the pace in the test, so he's got confidence enough. I'm intrigued. However, his road course results in Cup is not the best.

Good luck to him finding the money first off, and then good luck to him in the car.

Hopefully it happens.

I’m sure “Hendrickcars.com” or something along those lines could make an appearance. Same with something Chevrolet related, the #88 NASCAR Cup team basically runs off only those these days.

From what I've gathered, if JJ were to do the Southern 500 and other select events next year, it would be in a CGR car.

Thats weird. I was only earlier today thinking how he has disappeared from the scene. Not that I am a fan, just his name came to mind when thinking of his F1 years, in particular his slide from favour within STR backed by poor results relative to Buemi and of course Vettel. I recall him doing Le Mans post F1 and returning to the US scene and him having a major crash at Indy and returning but not heard anything much since that.
I thought he would have been a bit over the hill by now. He is no spring chicken surely.

He's not, but he wasn't a disaster by any means last year. He was supposed to go part-time this year but got shafted by the pandemic. I think he's been racing in IMSA this year.

He won a race in 2018 I think, and started okay in 2019 before fading. Had some bad luck, but also not quick.

Certainly getting slower with age though. He's no Dixon.
