Chip Johnson made the five-hour drive from his hometown of Fayetteville, N.C., to Commerce, Ga., by himself.
He made the return trip four days later with a passenger in the front seat — a guy named Wally.
Johnson has been chasing money and trophies at dragstrips east of the Mississippi for nearly 40 years. It dates back to age 16, when he began bracket racing the ’73 Duster he drove to school at Westside Christian School in Laurinburg, N.C.

Last weekend during the 4-Wide Nationals at zMax Dragway, near Charlotte, Monty Bogan Jr. drove his '67 Camaro to a runner-up finish in Stock Eliminator against Drew Skillman and finished one position better with his '92 Camaro over Joe Santangelo in the Super Stock final.
There was a time when those might be expected results for the four-time Sportsman racing world champion, who often raced up to 36 weekends per year in the late-'90s through early-2000s. But then Bogan backed off from racing to concentrate on building his career.

The day arrived. Maytag/Silverstate Refrigeration Million Dollar Friday, the main event of the K&N Spring Fling Million presented by Optima Batteries. A day which will certainly change the life of one person.
This being Vegas, what better “casino” to place a bet than The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and first up today was the Brodix Run For The $50,000. For a $50 “bet,” place a dial-in on your car, “pull the handle,” leave the starting line with a perfect .000 reaction time and run dead-on your dial with a “0” gets you a perfect run and a $50,000 check. If no perfect runs are recorded, the best package earns that driver a set of Brodix SR20 cylinder heads. Second place gets a $2,000 check and third place a free entry into the 2020 Spring Fling Million main event. If no one hits the $50K perfect run, the first perfect run in Friday’s elimination will earn that driver $20,000.
