O’Reilly NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals

Bristol, pre-race: Team Mopar NHRA Pro Stock driver and
Johnson’s best finish at his home event came last year with a quarterfinals appearance. He’ll attempt to kill two birds with one stone and notch both his first win of the 2008 season and his first victory at the Bristol NHRA stop.
Johnson hopes the benefits of being close to home pay off for the HEMI®-powered Mopar/J&J Racing Dodge Stratus R/T crew. His team includes crew chief Mark Ingersoll and his father and engine builder, Roy Johnson.
“It’s always a very nice part of the year,” said AJ. “Being able to race in front of your family and friends and to sleep in your own bed is a big plus.”
