Johnson Hugs The Pole At Wheatland

— Wayne Johnson scored his fifth Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour victory of the season by topping Saturday night’s 40-lap 12th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial finale atop the three-eighths-mile Lucas Oil Speedway clay oval. Johnson worked the low line to perfection as he raced from eighth to take command on the 25th lap en route to the $10,000 triumph aboard the Two-C Racing No. Johnson took full advantage of a pair of cautions in the opening 19 rounds as well as a red flag stoppage with ten laps remaining to post the win. Every one of those cautions came out at the right time,” Johnson explained after losing brakes in the early going. Meanwhile, Johnson cracked the top five by the eighth circuit and was third behind Hafertepe and Friday night winner Ayrton Gennetten by the time the race’s first caution flew after 15 laps when Landon Crawley looped it in turn four.
