4 Wins In-a-Row for Jarit Johnson at Hickory Motor Speedway
5-Wins out of first 8 Races Moves Johnson Within 2-Points of First Place

Monday June 11, 2007

Jarit Johnson piloted the no.44 Mintex Brakes Late Model to capture his 4th win in-a-row and 5th overall 2007 victory on Saturday at Hickory Motor Speedway. He qualified 4th but from the start the leaders got away. Johnson’s car got faster on the long runs and he was able to catch the leaders. It was a race that concluded with much excitement and victory for Johnson and the Mintex Racing crew.

“We weren’t that great in practice and our qualifying run could have been better,” said Johnson. “We certainly were not the fastest car here tonight, but we were fortunate enough to get into victory lane once again.”

Johnson spent most of the race slowly gaining on the leaders. The two lead cars were battling with each other lap after lap. Meanwhile Johnson was gaining momentum as the race stayed green. With five-laps remaining Johnson caught the leaders at the end of the front stretch. The two lead cars were side by side heading into turn one. Johnson’s momentum was much greater and as they entered turn one he got into the rear of the no.55 of Waylon Flynn.

“I didn’t mean to get into him,” stated Johnson. “I was building momentum and those guys were racing each other so hard that it was slowing them down. I was just trying to catch them. I carried a lot of speed into turn one and they slowed up at the same time.”

All three cars went sideways as they exited turn’s one and two. Johnson found a hole and drove to the lead position. He was now a wanted man, but was able to prove his speed and run away from the rest of the field. He captured his 5th win of the season.

“I felt bad for getting into Waylon,” expressed Johnson. “That’s not how I race. But sometimes that’s how it happens in short track racing. No one wrecked, which was good and the fans really seemed excited about the race, so I’m glad we put on a good show for them.”

“Even Sherry (President of Hickory Motor Speedway) came down to Victory lane, gave me hug and said what a great race it was, which was pretty cool,” Added Johnson.

Johnson was 22-points out of first place just a few weeks ago. He’s now moved within 2 points of first place in the championship standings with 10 scheduled races remaining. For further info on Jarit Johnson visit www.JaritJohnson.com
