MESQUITE, TEXAS (April 18, 2014) – The World of Outlaws were back at Devil’s Bowl Speedway for the first time since 2003 for night one of the Texas Outlaw Nationals. This is the track where Ted Johnson brought his World of Outlaws for the first race ever back in 1978 with Jimmy Boyd taking the win. The pits were filled with 30 of the best sprint cars and drivers in the country. One of those entries was the beautifully prepared American Eagle Harley-Davidson #41 driven by the 4-time ASCS National Tour champion – Jason Johnson. The Louisiana wheelman likes this track. In fact, he often states the unique half-mile oval, just outside of Dallas, is his favorite track. So when he pushed off ninth to take time trials, he nailed the load pedal to showcase his Don Ott Engine speed around the black clay. He turned a quick lap of 14.353 seconds, which was 13th quick overall. He missed the heat race inversion by one spot, so he lined up from the fifth position in the first and fastest heat race. Sam Hafertepe, Jr. started from the pole and took the win as Jason locked the AccuDoc Solutions/Oakley Maxim into the feature event with a sixth place finish. For the 25-lap feature, he earned the right to start from the inside of row seven. Anyone who knows the Louisiana gasser knows he likes to go fast and pass cars. When the green flag waved, pole sitter Wayne Johnson brought the field to speed in front of a packed house. A little further back in the field, the Cajun Sensation was on the move and picking up positions along the way in his eye catching American Eagle Harley-Davidson speed machine. When the last lap was completed, Donny Schatz took the victory ahead of Paul McMahan and Sammy Swindell, with Jason charging to a very respectable seventh place finish against the World of Outlaws on night one of the Texas Outlaw Nationals. The team will look for another impressive performance on Saturday in the finale.
