CONCORD, N.C. -- A special exhibit at the NASCAR Hall of Fame was unveiled Wednesday morning to honor seven-time Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson.
Titled "One Final Time," the exhibit includes displays from Johnson's final full-time season in the Cup Series last year. Twenty firesuits and signature trophies from the 45-year-old driver's legendary career are included in the display, as well as his chrome No. 48 Ally Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE from his last race at Phoenix Raceway.
The victory lane exhibit is open to the public starting Wednesday and offers a snapshot into Johnson's storied career. He is one of three Cup Series drivers to win seven championships and is the only driver to win five titles in a row. He has 83 points-paying wins, 232 top-five finishes and 374 top-10s over the course of his career.
After 19 seasons competing in the highest level of stock-car racing, Johnson retired and turned his sights to other endeavors in the racing world. He will be eligible for induction into the NASCAR Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2024.
