76 FREEDOM CAR

Johnson collects two checkered flags
The American Legion - July 22, 2011


Chalk up two more season victories for driver Jerick Johnson and The American Legion/David Law Firm 76 Freedom Car. Johnson captured an eight-lap trophy dash and later collected a checkered flag July 20 in the 40-lap feature at Gresham Motorsports Park in Jefferson, Ga.

The latest victories give the Team Johnson Motorsports driver 12 top-10 finishes, 10 top-five races and four victories in 16 starts. Johnson's other victories this year were in a May race at Newport Speedway in Tennessee and at Columbus Ohio Speedway earlier this month.

Johnson's win in the trophy dash earned him the pole position in the Midweek Mayhem feature at the half-mile track. Johnson held off a charging Michael lance to pick up his first victory on the GMP high-banks.

"I knew Lance was coming," Johnson said in victory lane. " I haven't raced here much, so I wanted to give him enough room and race clean, but he was going to have to go around the outside to pass.

"This is a sweet victory. I'd like to thank our sponsors, The American Legion and The David Law Firm and all the other folks that have helped us. I especially want to say how grateful I am to all our veterans and active-duty and reserve military forces that protect our freedoms and let us enjoy what we do here at home."

Johnson's Wednesday victory qualifies him for the November World Crown 300 All-Star race at GMP in November. The next race for the 76 Freedom Car is Aug. 13 at Concord Speedway near Charlotte, N.C.

76 FREEDOM CAR

 Gear sidelines 76 Freedom Car at Pocono
By James V. Carroll - June 6, 2010

Messina Wildlife Management 200 at Pocono 
Raceway on Saturday. James V. Carroll


Driver Jerick Johnson retired The American Legion/David Law Firm 76 Freedom Car on the 35th lap of the Messina Wildlife Management 200 at Pocono Raceway on Saturday after a rear gear failure. His withdrawal from the ARCA Racing Series 80-lap event resulted in a 30th-place finish.

The Pocono weekend at the famed 2.5-mile triangle track at Long Pond, Pa., was more an exercise of experience for Johnson than it was of result. Driver and crew spent most of their 100-minute practice time Friday morning not on the track, but, rather in the garage struggling to locate a metallic rub and vibration. The problem eventually was traced to the drive shaft. Johnson ended up getting in only 18 practice laps, and his times were 28th fastest among 34 cars taking practice laps.

Johnson stepped up his pace during the one-lap qualification attempt - qualifying 25th fastest for a 13th-row spot in the 36-car starting field.

"We were never really in the chase for the lead," a disappointed Johnson said after he pulled his wounded car to the infield garage. "The car was not handling very well all weekend, but I believe we could have had a descent finish if the car hadn't broke."

The 76 Freedom Car Team Johnson Motorsports crew has little time to prepare for their next ARCA Racing Series event - the June 11 Racing for Wildlife 200 at Michigan International Speedway near Brooklyn, Mich.

The 200-mile, 100-lap race is scheduled to begin at 5:15 p.m., and will be televised live on SPEED.
