Jimmie Johnson Returns: Legacy Motors and AdventHealth Collaboration in NASCAR 2024

Jimmie Johnson Returns: Jimmie Johnson, the seven-time NASCAR champion, is gearing up to commandeer Legacy Motors’ No. 48 car throughout 2024. His tenure with the team will encompass at least three high-octane races, marking a spirited return to the track.

Joining him in the Legacy Motors lineup, Erik Jones will take the reins of the No. 43 Toyota Camry XSE, igniting his racing prowess across six intense races for the team.

AdventHealth, previously in partnership with Chip Ganassi Racing and TrackHouse Racing, will now serve as the sponsor for Johnson’s adrenaline-fueled escapades in three thrilling races. This collaboration extends further to support Erik Jones in six races during the 2024 season.

“This collaboration signifies a thrilling moment for Legacy M.C.,” enthused Johnson, encapsulating the ethos of this new partnership. “AdventHealth aligns perfectly with our club’s holistic approach to health — body, mind, and spirit. I’m eagerly anticipating the upcoming season,” he added in a team statement.

The AdventHealth livery will adorn Johnson’s No. 48 car as it streaks across Texas Motor Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, and the prestigious AdventHealth 400 at Kansas Speedway.

No stranger to Legacy Motor Club, Johnson notably cruised with Carvana and Club Wyndham sponsorships throughout 2023. As the 2024 Cup Series commences, Johnson embarks on a new chapter, steering a vehicle other than a Chevrolet for the very first time.
