Johns To Pilot No. 89 Lafferty Performance Chevy; In Atlanta NCTS Event Saturday

Lawrenceville, GA (October 24, 2008) -- Richard Johns will get his second crack at the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series when he pilots the No. 89 Lafferty Performance Chevrolet in the EZ GO 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Johns made his Truck Series debut earlier this month at Talladega only to have the effort cut short after seven laps when a fitting failed forcing his truck's engine to lose oil pressure.

"I'm looking forward to racing in the Truck Series again," said Johns. "Being a native of the Atlanta area, I have always wanted to race there. It's a fast place, much like Texas where I raced a NASCAR Busch Series (now Nationwide) car last year. It should be a lot of fun."
