Jason Johnson Shuts Down ASCS Sooners at Outlaw Motor Speedway

Lonnie Wheatley, MUSKOGEE, Okla. (May 7, 2010) – Louisiana’s Jason Johnson added another notch to the victory column by topping Friday night’s 25-lap American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region debut at Outlaw Motor Speedway.

The Lucas Oil ASCS National title contender tuned up for the upcoming June 4 National event atop the 3/8-mile clay oval by racing from four rows deep in just three laps to take his third Regional score of the year aboard the Don Ott-powered Haynes/Pope Transportation No. 41 Maxim.

After starting seventh, “The Ragin’ Cajun” disposed of pole starter Robert Sellers on the third round and then motored on to his 75th career overall ASCS checkered flag in front of Lucas Oil National nemesis Tony Bruce, Jr., who advanced from eleventh for runner-up honors.

Danny Wood claimed the show position, with Aaron Berryhill in fourth. Sean McClelland charged from 14th to round out the top five, with Sherman Davis the final car on the lead lap in sixth.

Nick Smith raced from 15th to seventh, with Mike Peters, Whit Gastineau and reigning Sooner champ Joe Wood, Jr., completing the top ten.

Johnson, Berryhill, Peters and Sellers topped heat race action for Friday night’s 33-car field, with Smith and Gastineau winning the twin “B” Mains.
