Two-time Daytona 500 champ Jimmie Johnson ready for one final ride. MORE:
Two-time champ Jimmie Johnson will be making his final ride in the Daytona 500 on Sunday.
Johnson paused when he saw the 22-foot high flagstand, where twice the checkered flag waved to declare him the Daytona 500 champion, and decided to climb up. Dressed in khakis and a black polo shirt, Johnson surveyed the empty track, where hours later he would make his expected final Daytona 500 start.
"I feel really good about it," Johnson said the day before the race."We've had great speed in our 500 car."Johnson was mobbed as he made his way through the garage from autograph seekers who wanted one more keepsake. He signed a woman's shirt, the bill of baseball caps and other memorabilia before he ducked in front of a row of haulers to avoid the crush.
"Jimmie Johnson's become a really good friend of mine over the last 15 years or so," Rucker said."We hang out a lot and talk a lot. I'd love to see Jimmie go out and take this race."
