Jarit Johnson Featured on WSOC TV “Race Report” During Charlotte’s Race Weeks

Mooresville, NC. --

Friday May 25, 2007

Jarit Johnson was featured on WSOC TV’s (Cable Channel 9) “Race Report” in the Charlotte (NC) region. The program was aired just after Pole Night at Lowes Motor Speedway, where the show was broadcast live. Jarit’s portion was taped earlier, but aired as a feature along with race reports for one of NASCAR NEXTEL Cup’s biggest races of the year, the Coca Cola 600.

Johnson’s interview took place in his home race shop (garage), where he spoke about his current racing career and brought up some old stories of growing up with NEXTEL Cup Star Jimmie Johnson (Lowes #48). “My Mom used to buy Jimmie and me little plastic cars and we would race them around the porch of our house back in California,” said Johnson.

Both brothers (Jarit & Jimmie) talked about a car ride when they were kids that turned a bit ugly. “We were fighting over a video game,” explained Jimmie. “The size D batteries fell out of the game and Jarit picked them up. He said, hey Jimmie and when I looked over he threw them at me and knocked my tooth out.”

Jarit continued to tell the story. “My Dad pulled over on the side of the freeway and I don’t think I’ve ever been spanked that hard in my life,” expressed Jarit.

Jarit Johnson has been racing at Hickory Motor Speedway this season. The program highlighted his two wins and aired a clip of the no.44 Mintex Brakes car and Johnson in Victory Lane. Johnson will be racing this Saturday Night at Hickory, while older brother will be racing in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup event.
