Chip Johnson has been a successful sportsman racer for decades and his achievements include an IHRA series championship and he finally broke through for his first NHRA victory after driving to the Atlanta Stock title. Johnson won the final after his North Carolina neighbor Jeff Warren red-lighted in the all-COPO Camaro final round. Johnson’s path to the final included battles against four-time national champion Jeff Taylor, past Division 2 champ Robbie Shaw, and a semifinal race against Jim Marshall. In that bout, Johnson ran a perfect 9.680 on his 9.68 dial for the win.
