Top Five Return to Hickory for Jarit Johnson
Aug 14, 2006 - updated Aug 14th, 2006 3:23pm
Web posted by Shawn Stewart

Hickory, NC. --

Monday August 14, 2006

Jarit Johnson started 10th and finished 5th Saturday night at Hickory Motor Speedway in Newton, NC. Johnson piloted the No. 44 Dream Weaver, Farris Insurance, Rusty Rudder Chevrolet for the Bojangles Night at the Races. In Qualifying Johnson experienced carburetor trouble and a major hesitation in the throttle response. He was nearly 4-tenths slower on his two-lap qualifying run than his practice times earlier in the day. The carburetor trouble plagued him again during the race. Johnson drove a smart race despite the loss of power and added another top five to his record at the famous short track. He now has a record of 3-wins, 4-poles and 15 top fives.

Johnson, who hasn’t raced since last Octobers Fall Brawl at Hickory, was pleased with the outcome on his return. “I’m happy with the finish and the hard work that everyone put into getting here,” said Johnson. “But we clearly missed some things and were a bit unprepared. We’re close and once we get a few issues tightened up I’m confident we’ll be fine.”

The team worked late into the night before the event to prepare the old race car that’s literally been collecting cob webs. Unlike most in the race, Johnson or his team hasn’t seen Hickory for over ten months. So, they needed a night to…knock the cob webs off (no pun intended). Crew Chief, Dan DiPaolo was also pleased with the results, but shared Johnson’s outlook on upcoming races.

“Things went well considering the amount of track time we had and how long it’s been since all of us have worked together,” stated DiPaolo. “We have a list of things that we missed tonight, but we aren’t far off either. I feel good about our chances in upcoming races.”

Johnson is not in a point’s championship race at Hickory this year. So, he looks for top finishes and most of all is seeking victory. He will return to the track in less than a week. The team will make necessary adjustments and look to improve on their already solid run this coming Saturday August 19th.
