Tennessee native previews hometown race at the Bristol Dragway.

BRISTOL, Tenn. (April 18, 2003) -- NHRA fans will have the opportunity to chat with Mopar Pro Stock driver Allen Johnson on ESPN.com on Wed., April 23, prior to the third annual Mac Tools Thunder Valley NHRA Nationals at Bristol Dragway, April 25-27. The chat session is slated for 4:30 p.m., Eastern/1:30 p.m., Pacific.

The Greeneville, Tenn., resident considers Bristol Dragway his home track, spending quite a bit of time testing at the Bruton Smith-owned facility. Johnson is also one of the favorites in challenging for this year's POWERade Pro Stock World Championship -- and currently sits a solid fourth.

So far this season, Johnson has collected a final round appearance at Pomona (Calif.) Raceway and a semifinal round outing at Gainesville (Fla.) Raceway. The two-time NHRA Pro Stock category victor debuted the new Hemi-powered Dodge Stratus R/T in the most recent NHRA national event at Houston Raceway Park.

To chat with Johnson, log onto ESPN.com, move to the motorsports section (RPM.ESPN.com) and click on the CHAT button.
