“This is a proud day for our entire organization,” owner Rick Hendrick said in a statement. “Ally has built a tremendous brand by putting the customer at the center of their decisions and doing things right.
“In the same way, Jimmie has always put people first and handled himself like a champion in every sense of the word. Ally’s full-season commitment makes a powerful statement about their enthusiasm for him, our program and the direction of our sport. It’s an unbelievable fit, and all of us are thrilled to launch what will be a long and successful partnership.”
Johnson’s contract runs concurrently with the two-year deal with Ally, as he is signed with Hendrick Motorsports through 2020.
“The opportunity to work with a partner like Ally is incredible,” Johnson said in a statement. “Their commitment to leading in both the workplace and the community is something that resonates with me in a big way. They’ve sent a strong message about how much they believe in me and in our team, and I will do my part to make sure it’s the best investment they’ve ever made. I’m ready to chase more history with Ally on board the ’48.'”
