MCCOOL JUNCTION, NE (August 17, 2004) - Jason Johnson paid his second visit of the season to Junction Motor Speedway Tuesday night and came away with his second X-1R A Main victory to open the tenth annual Haulmark All Star sprint vs. O'Reilly/NCRA Thunder Thru the Plains series.
Johnson, who won the last NCRA show at Junction Motor Speedway on July 15, picked up where he left off leading all 30 laps for his third victory of the season.
Johnson gunned into the lead by the end of lap one and was immediately chased by Jeremy Campbell. Campbell fought to stay with Johnson throughout the race and made his first challenge as Johnson approached lapped traffic after five laps. Staying in the low groove Johnson pulled back out front as the first yellow waved on lap eight for the stalled car of ten-time NCRA champion Gary Wright. Johnson got a good jump on the restart and pulled a straightaway lead over Campbell. The yellow waved again on lap 10 for Daron Clayton but it had no effect on Johnson.
Campbell's last chance came when Johnson got a little loose in turn two of lap 19. But it was not enough and Johnson led Campbell to the checkered. Jason Solwold followed in third with Travis Whitney fourth and Aaron Berryhill rounding out the top five.
O'Reilly/NCRA defending champion Brooke Tatnell gambled with the high groove throughout the race and battled for position only to finish eighth behind Danny Smith.
