on

Seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson has announced that he will retire at the conclusion of the 2020 season. Johnson won five NASCAR Cup Series championships in a row from 2006 through 2010, then another title in 2013, and finally, added another for good measure in 2016.

Johnson recorded his first career NASCAR win at Chicagoland Speedway, then signed with Hendrick Motorsports in September 2000. After 18 seasons, Johnson is the all-time winningest Cup driver at Dover (11 wins), Charlotte (eight wins), Texas (seven wins), Fontana (six wins), Las Vegas (four wins) and Kansas (three wins).

Johnson is the only driver to have qualified for the NASCAR Cup Series championships every year since its inception in 2004.
