Familiar Ground: Jason Johnson looks to add to success at I-30 Speedway 

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — April 22, 2016 — Jason Johnson has probably turned more laps at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., than any other full-time World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series competitor. With around 30 starts at the quarter-mile under his belt, along with five career wins, including the Short Track Nationals in 2006, Johnson has had the event on Tuesday, April 26 circled on his calendar since the schedule came out in the winter.

While his stats at the track would probably make him the favorite on paper, Johnson is quick to point out that gaining an upper hand on any World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series competitors is nearly impossible.
