Danny Johnson Takes Super DIRTcar Series Opener
“The Doctor” Outlasts Stars Sheppard and Hearn for Victory in First Big Block Modified Feature of UNOH DIRTcar Nationals Presented by Summit Racing Equipment
BARBERVILLE, Fla. – February 21, 2013 – Despite fierce challenges from Big Block Modified star Brett Hearn and three-time defending Super DIRTcar Series Champion Matt Sheppard, Danny Johnson wheeled the 27J to victory Wednesday, Feb. 20, for the first Super DIRTcar Big Block Modified Series feature of UNOH DIRTcar Nationals Presented by Summit Racing Equipment at Volusia Speedway Park.
Although Johnson won the pole in qualifying rounds, Sheppard jumped to the lead off the initial green. He didn’t stay there long, losing the top spot to Johnson after a restart in lap four. Johnson maintained his lead for the rest of the 30-lap feature, battling lapped traffic, a second caution and a last-minute battle with Hearn.
“We had some great racers next to us and a great racing surface out there,” said Johnson, who hails from Rochester, N. Y. “I don’t know how it was from the other side, but it sure was exciting from my side.”
