INDIANAPOLIS –The driver and crew chief who have combined for six NASCAR Sprint Cup Series titles—including a record five in a row—are both in contract years.

But Jimmie Johnson doesn’t appeared worried about his future at Hendrick Motorsports. In fact, during a question-and-answer session with reporters at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the driver of the No. 48 Chevrolet had to be reminded that his deal is up at the end of 2015.

“We still have… is it next year on my contract?” Johnson asked coyly. “I don’t even know. We are obviously not concerned. We have been getting things buttoned up with (sponsor) Lowe’s, with Hendrick, with (crew chief) Chad (Knaus) and myself—all of that.

“Like I said, I’m home (at Hendrick). It’s just a formality at this point to get everything kind of finished up and done.”
