McKENZIE, Tenn. (June 27, 2018) – Tennessee sprint car manufacturer J&J Auto Racing saw a near-perfect weekend of racing realized as teams around the country combined for nine victories in only three days.

Celebration isn’t the top priority in the days following, as the World of Outlaws (WoO) Craftsman Sprint Car Series lost one of its own at Beaver Dam (Wis.) Raceway on June 23. J&J Auto Racing extends its deepest condolences to the family of the late Jason Johnson following Saturday’s tragic accident. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bobbi, Jaxx and the entire Johnson family and No. 41 team at this time.

For those wishing to aid Johnson’s family, the WoO Benevolent Fund has established an official GoFundMe account: https://www.gofundme.com/JasonJohnsonForever41
