CONCORD, N.C. – Jimmie Johnson may be a seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, but the driver of the No. 48 Ally Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 had always wanted to take his turn behind the wheel of a Formula 1 machine.

Johnson got his chance when he and two-time Formula 1 champion Fernando Alonso swapped rides at Bahrain International Circuit last November.

The driver traveled to the other side of the world for an unforgettable experience. Relive it all through his eyes in the video above.
