Wayne Johnson Chasing 2022 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour Championship


Bryan Hulbert Ė OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (April 7, 2022) Coming out with the points lead following the first four rounds of the 2022 season, Oklahoma Cityís Wayne Johnson will return to the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network full time in the JRS Trucking/Outlaw Wings No. 2c.

No stranger to the American Sprint Car Series, the 2000 National Tour Championís first ASCS win was at Lone Star Speedway in 1993. Since then, Johnson has topped the tour 55 times, including his most recent victory during the 2022 season opener at the Devilís Bowl Speedway.

Fourth in overall tour wins, Johnson leads in overall A-Feature starts with 514. His record also includes 164 podium appearances, 256 top five, and 389 top-ten finishes.

ďThe format was a big reason, honestly. Having that weekend off, going to Devilís Bowl, and seeing how everything played out and how the format worked, I think itís going to play out better in the long run where the old draw system could bite you pretty bad sometimes,Ē explained Johnson of his decision to return to the American Sprint Car Series.

ďAfter I looked at the schedule and being on the Outlaw tour for the past two years, slowing down actually feels kind of good. With this schedule, itís what I want to do at this time in my career, where Iím not gone for months at a time. The Outlaw deal is tough; those guys are the best in the business, thatís why they are out there. I realize Iím 50-years old. I donít know how much longer Iíll keep doing this, but the changes that Iíve seen and the direction Terry [Mattox] is going, Iím looking forward to seeing how it goes this year.Ē

While the goal is the season-ending $50,000 championís check, Wayne will still have plenty to do with plans to race a lot at Knoxville Raceway and various other 410cid events around the Midwest.
