Warren Johnson isn't letting the runaway Jeg's racing team distract him from his mission. Despite trailing six-time season winner Jeg Coughlin by more than 200 points, Johnson remains hopeful of securing a sixth Pro Stock championship. The 80-time career winner has posted only one victory this season - at Gainesville, Fla. Johnson, who admits that he's been busy developing a potent tune-up for future seasons, is anxious to see Summer approaching, where he's been tough in the past. Johnson, 56, is the defending winner of the Pontiac Excitement Nationals, a race he's won three times during his storied career. "When you look at where we're at on the schedule, we're not in that bad shape," said Johnson, who defeated current points leader Coughlin for the victory here last year. "We're coming into the hot part of the season and I think that's going to work to our advantage. There's still a lot of racing left."
