A race car driver that called Rocky Mount home before his untimely death will be honored in Eldon this weekend. The World of Outlaws returns to Lake Ozark Speedway for the Jason Johnson Classic. Nick Graziano with World of Outlaws and dirtcar.com says it’s an important race for the drivers, not only to pay tribute to Jason, but also in terms of trying to win a championship.
Johnson was killed while racing in Wisconsin in 2018. His wife continues to run his race team out of Rocky Mount. Saturday’s race begins with hot laps around 6pm. Grand stands will open at 2pm.
