“It’s a fantastic track for us. It’s really working really well for us,” said Johnson, whose victory Saturday was his fourth Super DIRTcar Series win of 2014. “I just had a great hot rod. The car is two years old and it’s just a great running car for us.”

Johnson stayed at his tail and reclaimed the position off a lap-29 restart.
