Jimmie Johnson‘s NASCAR plate is plenty full right now with his new ownership in Legacy Motor Club but he‘s still eyeing a chance to drive NASCAR‘s Garage 56 entry this season in the Le Mans 24 Hours.

The entry — a modified version of the Next Gen Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 race car — is a collaboration of NASCAR, Hendrick Motorsports, Chevrolet, IMSA, and Goodyear.

“It is without a doubt on my radar,” Johnson told Motorsport.com. “I‘ve been able to help develop the car, drive it and I‘ve had an amazing experience doing so. I‘m still eagerly awaiting my formal invite/contract.

Sports-car veteran Mike Rockenfeller, a former Le Mans overall winner, tested the Hendrick-built car at Virginia International Raceway in November. Johnson tested the car last month at Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, S.C.
