Jason Johnson Recovering from Burns

TULSA, Okla. (April 11, 2006) -- Louisiana native Jason Johnson is recovering at his Greenville, TX, residence from burns received in this past Saturday night's American Sprint Car Series Gulf South Region season opener at Houston Raceway Park.

Johnson received second-degree burns on the lower part of both legs, extending from his knees to his ankles, with the back portion of each leg the worst.

Making his debut aboard Marvin and Peggy Pearson's No. 11 entry, Johnson was challenging for second in the latter portion of the feature event when the fuel system malfunctioned and engulfed him in flames.

Johnson, who is splitting time this season between the Pearson No. 11 and Lanny Row's No. 41, is expected to be back in action for the April 21 and 22 ASCS Gulf South weekend at Baton Rouge Raceway and Pike County Speedway in Magnolia, MS.
