SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (April 10, 2015) – Once again the racing community has come together to form a positive partnership in a time of challenge and need. As Jason Johnson recovers from serious injuries sustained in an accident on Wednesday night at Placerville Speedway, the JJR team owners, Jason and Bobbi Johnson, put on their business hats and announced that two-time World of Outlaw Champion, Jason Meyers, will drive the Jason Johnson Racing (JJR) #41 entry for the balance of the West Coast swing. With the support of all of JJR’s valued sponsorship partners – Priority Aviation Services, LLC, Fischer Body Shop, Mesilla Valley Transportation (MVT), Dissolvalloy Frac Ball Revolution, Saich Family and Waco Metal – the new combination will look to finish out the West Coast swing on a high note with Jason Meyers piloting the #41 this weekend at Calistoga Speedway on Saturday and Sunday night, as well as, next weekend at Kings Speedway and Perris Auto Speedway.
Jason Meyers is certainly no stranger to the World of Outlaws, sprint car racing and victory lane. The native of Clovis, California has raced to 57 career World of Outlaw victories whiling claiming two prestigious championships back-to-back in 2010 and 2011. In addition to sharing the same first name, Johnson and Meyers have a lot more in common – both display great family values, both are very good business people, both are courageous and innovative, both operated their own professionally presented race teams, and both drivers enjoy the challenge of racing against the best drivers in the world, night in and night out, in pursuit of refining their skills and craft while also attempting to be the first to the finish line each night.
Jason Johnson made the announcement this afternoon and stated, “We are glad Jason Meyers was available and willing to partner with us to finish out this West Coast swing.” He continued, “It’s an honor to announce he will be driving the #41 this weekend and next weekend. We really appreciate his willingness to sit in the seat for JJR.”
