"It felt great to start the 2011 racing season off with a victory," commented K&N sponsored Jason Johnson. "The JJR organization has been working hard during the off season, and to come back to America and win the first night in competition just shows how dedicated and strong this team really is. The very next night, finishing on the podium completed a great weekend."
The JJR team's goal for 2011 is to reach 25 plus wins.

There were 52 Lucas Oil ASCS Sprints at the 38th Annual Spring Nationals, and after spending a part of his off season in Australia racing, this was Johnson's first race back on U.S. soil in 2011. And, the JJR number 41 team managed to get their first Lucas Oil ASCS presented by K&N Filters win of the young season. Johnson followed up his win in the first of two nights of racing at the historic 1/2-mile clay Devils Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, with a third place finish the next evening.

For the Jason Johnson Racing team, 2011 will be a highly diverse season. Competing for the Lucas Oil, presented by K&N, American Sprint Car Series is among the top priorities of competition throughout the season. However, when he's free due to scheduling, JJR will compete throughout the United States, within some of the ASCS Regional Events. The team also has plans to compete at the 51st Annual Knoxville Nationals, along with periodic events with the World of Outlaws.
The 38th Annual Spring Nationals was Johnson's first race weekend back on U.S. soil in 2011, and he drove away with a win and third place finish.

"For the past eight years, I personally had very little down time during the American off season," Johnson said. "With great opportunities to compete in Australia, my wife (Bobbi) and I make an annual trek down-under to compete with the World Sprint Car Series (WSS). As soon as the season ends here in November, we head off till the beginning of a March return. This allows me to stay sharp at the wheel, competing 12 months a year. In addition, it's a wonderful opportunity to visit another great country."

"We definitely have 2011 goals we would like to accomplish," continued Johnson. "For the past several years, JJR has won 20 to 25 victories per season. For 2011 we would like to produce a few more, with perhaps 25 plus victories this season."

"Obviously, with JJR currently leading the ASCS car owner championship, we would like to capitalize on another championship. Although this season, we will have to reap the benefits as owners, due to the absence of not competing at the first four national events personally."

Jason Johnson Racing's other big goals for this year are to win some of the spotlight events such as, The Fred Brownfield Memorial, the 360 and 410 Knoxville Nationals, the Short Track Nationals, and the Eagle Nationals. "And any other big events JJR competes in," adds Johnson.

"With this being Jason Johnson Racing's second year in existence, we greatly appreciate the opportunity to work along with branding the K&N name throughout the 360 marketing area. JJR has been a lifetime believer in K&N products, and it is great to be affiliated with such a successful company, and to get such an obvious track advantage. Utilizing K&N product within our JJR organization, we know we have a clear advantage in the dirty climate of sprint car racing."

Up next for the JJR team will be the race in Little Rock, Arkansas, at the I-30 Speedway.
