Johnson ran well all weekend long in Denver, Colorado. “It was a fairy tale weekend,” said Johnson. “This was a Mopar event and we were the fastest car and No. 1 qualifier. We’ve been a win waiting to happen since the first of the year and just hadn’t gotten a break.” It had been thirteen years since a Mopar had won Pro Stock at an event they sponsored.

“Going into the finals we knew it was going to be tough,” said Johnson. “Ron Krisher was fast all day and I knew it was going to be close. Every run we made was pretty awesome. We were on our game.”

Johnson has earned $3,000 for being the No. 1 qualifier at Denver along with points towards  the 2008 K&N Horsepower Challenge. Pro Stock drivers who accumulate the most points in qualifying during the 23-race Challenge series have a chance to earn $50,000. The runner-up earns $10,000, the two-semifinalists earn $3,000 each and the four first-round finishers will receive $2,500 each.

Johnson’s next race is the Schuck’s Auto Supply NHRA Nationals at Seattle, Washington.
