Johnson turned some laps Tuesday in a Cup car at Phoenix Raceway, the place where he last drove in NASCAR in 2020. The seven-time Cup champion has spent the last two years racing in IndyCar, and the stock car — a much heavier car with less horsepower and not stop-on-a-dime braking — obviously felt different.
“The speed did seem different, no doubt about that,” Johnson said. “And then just the mass of the vehicle — such a different feeling in the stock car with all the mass trying to slow it down and trying to change directions, trying to use the throttle.
“With the IndyCar, it’s so crisp and nimble. But that’s been hard for me to sense and feel so it’s really nice to be back in a car that gave me some warning, gave me some cues that it’s slipping and sliding around.”
