Jimmie Johnson sees ‘opportunity’ to delay retirement following NASCAR’s coronavirus suspension

Jimmie Johnson planned to retire at the end of the 2020 NASCAR Cup season, but could his one “One More Time” motto end up stretching into one more year?

The seven-time champion told USA Today that he thinks “the opportunity could be there” for him to drive for his Hendrick Motorsports team in 2021, amid the uncertainty about how this season will play out due to the current suspension caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

NASCAR is still trying to come up with a way to run a full 36 races, with 32 still to go, but that may require holding doubleheader weekends at certain tracks, rather than a traditional schedule that visits all the venues as planned.
