Make-A-Wish team, Johnson advance to third semifinals of grueling June Swing with further gains planned for rare off week

Category : DSR news

NORWALK, Ohio (June 25, 2017) – Tommy Johnson Jr. and Terry Chandler’s Make-A-Wish Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car team advanced to its third semifinals round of the June Swing at the 11th annual NHRA Nationals at Norwalk, Ohio.

Johnson advanced to the semifinals where he faced his Don Schumacher Racing Jack Beckman and the Infinite Hero Foundation Dodge, also funded by Terry Chandler but Beckman was able to win and move on to win the title.

“It caught me by surprise,” Johnson said of smoking the tires for the first time since Friday night during qualifying. “It was a good day, the car was on, running great, had low E.T. second round and just thought we were really on track and just out of nowhere smoked the tires.”

On Sunday, Johnson entered race day qualified No. 5 with his time of 3.925 seconds at 329.34 mph. He faced J.R. Todd of Kalitta Motorsports for round one.

Johnson clocked a lap of 3.942 seconds (322.34) to give him the win over Todd. Later in the second round, Johnson lined up against his DSR teammate and NHRA points leader Ron Capps. Johnson ran low of the round with his time of 3.960 (324.44) to give him the win over Capps’ 3.965.

Johnson met Beckman for the second week in a row in the semifinals.

“We’ll have to look and find what changed. We didn’t really change anything on the car for it to smoke the tires, so something happened and we’ll keep searching,” Johnson said.

“I’m really happy with the way the car’s running, especially on race day. The guys are doing a great job of racing and that’s what we’ve done over the last few years to get where we were at the end of the season. So, they’re doing a great job with that and we’ll continue to progress.”

Norwalk is the final race of a four-race swing throughout the month of June. After a month of racing, the NHRA circuit will have a weekend off before traveling to Chicago for the Route 66 Nationals.

Make-A-Wish, Johnson consistent throughout Norwalk qualifying, will start No. 5 to end grueling four-race June Swing

Category : DSR news

NORWALK, Ohio (June 24, 2017) – After three nice qualifying runs, Tommy Johnson Jr. and Terry Chandler’s Make-A-Wish Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car team enter race day of the 11th annual NHRA Nationals in Norwalk, Ohio on Sunday with confidence.

Friday in Norwalk brought rain and delayed qualifying a bit. Temperatures rose on Saturday to match predicted temperatures for Sunday’s championship round.
The Make-A-Wish team, led by crew chief John Collins with assistant crew chief Rip Reynolds, finished qualifying with an effort of 3.925 seconds at 329.34 mph to seed them No. 5.

“We made three solid runs in qualifying and the car was consistent,” Johnson said. “Conditions will be a little different tomorrow but similar to what we saw today.”
During Saturday’s first session, Johnson clocked a time of 4.008 (320.05) for the second-quickest lap of the session. Later he made another solid 3.990 lap (316.38).
Track conditions from the final qualifying session will be similar to what teams will see tomorrow on Sunday.

“We made two good runs today and if we keep that up and continue the momentum we’ve had the last three races, we should be good for tomorrow.”

Johnson will face J.R. Todd of Kalitta Motorsports for the opening round of competition. This is only the second event that the two have met on Sunday as Todd spent the past few years racing in the Top Fuel division. Their previous meetup resulted in Johnson winning over Todd.

The NHRA Nationals in Norwalk, Ohio will close out the “June Swing,” a four-race series throughout the month.

“Not having won a race (at Norwalk) in the past, it would be nice to get a win (here) just because it’s such a nice event and great track.”

Johnson and Chandler’s Make-A-Wish Dodge look to keep improving this weekend as NHRA Series moves to Norwalk in Northern Ohio

Category : DSR news

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 20, 2017) – The “June Swing,” comes to a close this weekend as the fourth race of a four-race swing ends at the 11th annual NHRA Nationals in Norwalk, Ohio, and Tommy Johnson Jr., driver of Terry Chandler’s Make-A-Wish Dodge Funny Car, is ready to close out the month with a win.

“I think we’ve done well in the previous three races after coming out of that slump,” Johnson said. “We’ve turned our team around and I’m excited for the hotter weather and summer conditions.”

The NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing series is in the heat of its 2017 season. June consists of four races in four weeks. The Make-A-Wish team has advanced to the quarterfinals or better at each of the three events so far.

As temperatures continue to go up this month, the Make-A-Wish Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car Powered by Pennzoil, has traveled down hot race tracks as many other cars went up in tire smoke.

“It’s seems to be to our team’s liking. Our car seems to run better when it’s hot and we’re heading into the hotter events now.”

The NHRA Nationals in Norwalk is the 12th event of the 2017 NHRA season.

“I do enjoy the track and the fans there,” Johnson said. “The facility is really nice. It’s a race I always look forward to every season.”

Last year in Norwalk, the Make-A-Wish team, led by crew chief John Collins and assistant Rip Reynolds, finished qualifying as the No. 8 seed.
Johnson beat Tim Wilkerson in the first round and Del Worsham in the quarterfinals. He then was defeated by Courtney Force in the semifinals.

The Make-A-Wish team earned the event title in Las Vegas in March but has yet to revisit the winner’s circle. Johnson says he and the team would love to earn their second win of the season at Norwalk.

“Not having won a race there in the past, it would be nice to get a win there just because it’s such a nice event and great track.”

Johnson, Make-A-Wish experience another successful Thunder Valley Nationals with semifinal finish at Bristol

Category : DSR news

BRISTOL, Tenn. (June 18, 2017) – Tommy Johnson Jr. wanted nothing more than to win the 17th annual Thunder Valley Nationals on Father’s Day weekend with his day Tommy Johnson Sr., who also celebrated his 72nd birthday over the weekend, in the stands but Terry Chandler’s Make-A-Wish Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car came up a tick short in the semifinals.

Before the semifinals, a summer rain shower fell at Bristol Dragway resulting in a delay. Prior to the rain, the track was hot and sticky and the Make-A-Wish Dodge made two of the better laps in the opening rounds on a race track that saw temperatures exceed 140 degrees.

In the opening round, Johnson ran a 4.105-second lap at 314.17 mph over rookie Jonnie Lindberg’s 5.901 before bettering the No. 1 qualifier, Tim Wilkerson, in round two to advance to the semifinals for the fifth time this season.

“The rain delay is probably what cost us the race,” Johnson, who has twice won at Thunder Valley said. “We were the car to beat coming into the semifinal round the way we were running in the heat.”

Squaring off against teammate Jack Beckman, whose team also is funded by Terry Chandler, the winner from one week ago in New Jersey scored the semifinal win light in the Infinite Hero Dodge 4.009 to Johnson’s 4.043.

“This Make-A-Wish team does such a great job when the conditions are really bad like they were today,” Johnson added. “That delay gave everyone else an opportunity and they got around us there in a close race. I’m still happy with the weekend. You never want to lose, but very happy with how the team and car performed in the heat and bad conditions and we’ll see more of that coming up.

“We’ve got two semis and a second round in this June Swing and it’s got us going back in the right direction. We were in a slump after winning at (Las) Vegas. Now going into Norwalk this team has a lot of confidence after starting these four races in a hole. We want to go to Ohio and bring the Wally back to Indy.”

Next weekend is the final race of a four-race swing throughout the month of June when the NHRA circuit travels to the 12th event of the 24 race Mello Yello Series season for the 11th annual NHRA Nationals in Norwalk, Ohio.

Chandler’s Make-A-Wish Dodge with Johnson hope to continue tradition of winning on Father’s Day in Thunder Valley Nationals

Category : DSR news

BRISTOL, Tenn. (June 17, 2017) – With Father’s Day approaching, Tommy Johnson Jr. has the perfect gift in mind for his father Tommy Johnson Sr.: a NHRA Wally trophy from the 17th annual NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals at Bristol, Tenn.

“It seems like things happen for us on Father’s Day weekend so it gives you more confidence than maybe some other race weekends,” said Johnson, who has won at Thunder Valley twice on Father’s Day.

Sunday, Johnson and Terry Chandler’s Make-A-Wish Funny Car team will take a stab at the tricky Tennessee track.

“It’s been a tough weekend for everybody with the hot track conditions we’ve seen. Unfortunately, we missed it a little bit when conditions were better. But I still feel like we’re racing in the hot conditions and we’ve ran well in the heat.”

The team will enter race day as the No. 8 qualified Funny Car with their best effort of 4.000 seconds at 315.93 mph from the final qualifying session. Johnson will face off against Jonnie Lindberg of Jim Head Racing.

The Make-A-Wish Dodge Charger R/T Powered by Pennzoil posted a lap during the heat of the day Friday to open qualifying of 4.050 (309.49) to go low of the round as many other Funny Cars went into smoke.

“We were No. 1 after the first session so I think going into tomorrow, we’ll have a good tune-up for it. We’ve got a lot of history here and it was hot like this last year when we won. So going into race day, I feel confident knowing what we’ve done here in the past few years.”

Johnson hoisted the Wally trophy in 2014 and in 2016.

“Bristol always falls near my dad’s birthday and I’ve been able to celebrate his birthday and Father’s Day with him a few times at the end of the day in the winner’s circle and I’d love to do it again this year.”
