Like so many racer's in the sport, Jason Johnson began his racing career watching his father. He'd head out to local race tracks in Southern Louisiana, first to watch, and then to help his family race their Sprint cars & Open Wheel Modifieds. As time passed, Jason began to closely watch the elite racers in the sport, looking forward to the day that he himself could get behind the wheel. Young Jason knew that he still had to pay his dues, and learn everything he could about the sport. After High School, Jason decided to move north, to Mechanicsburg Pennsylvania in search of a job with a World of Outlaws team.

The hard work and dedication certainly paid off. Jason has been able to show his talents running the Texas Super Sprints, Cajun Sprinters, USCS, ASCS, ASCOC, among others. His first victory came in 1998 at the ASCS Sprint Car series in Rusk,Texas. Wins also followed at the 2003 Worlds of Outlaws race at Texas Motor Speedway, and in 2006 at the Knoxville Nationals. Following 2007 with over 20 victories, 2008 brought a victory at the $50,000 Oliie's Bargain Outlet Challenge winning 2 of the 3 races. The next year, Jason again had over 20 wins again.
When asked about K&N, Jason had this to say: "Back when I was a kid, my father was a firm believer in K&N Air Filtration systems. Embedded into me, as I began with my own career I also became a firm believer in utilizing K&N for all my personal needs as well as the race teams I competed for."
Jason also wanted to share that, "On my race car, the specialized K&N Air Box is awesome at keeping all the dust and dirt out of our Don Ott Racing Engines. While competing on dirt tracks puts K&N to the test, and our results speak for themselves with 17 victories so far in 2010. K&N. Like my father once taught me, a clean engine is a happy engine. We thank K&N for making it all possible."
