Steve Johnson enjoyed his best weekend of the season after advancing to
the final round on his Snap-on Tools Suzuki during this weekend past at the NHRA Mid-South Nationals in Memphis, TN.
The Alabama resident defeated Chris Rivas, Hector Arana, and Craig Treble on a
holeshot to reach the money round for the first time this season.
The 20-year racing veteran
broke in the final round against Andrew Hines to end his fantastic weekend.
But, while all might have appeared peachy on the outside -- on the inside Johnson's weekend was a tempest.
“As a competitor, I’m pretty proud of my riding contributions
this weekend," Johnson said. "It’s so easy to redlight,
or have an okay light or even be late, but this weekend I was in the zone, where
everything worked perfectly. I don’t
know how to explain it, but every time I went to the starting line my vision
narrowed down and it was just me, our Suzuki and the Tree. Everything else faded away, and that’s why we
had really good Reaction Times in every round.
