7-time NASCAR Cup champion Jimmie Johnson made his long-awaited IndyCar test debut Tuesday on the road course at Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Chip Ganassi Racing.

Here are some social media highlights from the day's events.

No word on lap times – it was hot and there was no rubber down on the track. Johnson spun several times trying to feel the limits of the car.

At his age, having never driven an IndyCar in his life, he would have a difficult beating the far more experienced drivers in IndyCar, but we applaud him for giving it a try.
