Steve Johnson and Edmond Richardson join host Brian Lohnes on this episode of the NHRA Insider podcast. Johnson after a stunning triumph at the Countdown to the Championship-opening event at Maple Grove Raceway, and Richardson after a larger-than-life reentry into NHRA Sportsman racing with victories in consecutive weeks at the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event in Bowling Green, Ky., and the Dodge//SRT NHRA U.S. Nationals.
Johnson is introspective and analytical about not only his win in Maple Grove but the arc of his career in NHRA Drag Racing. It is a career that thus far has not yielded a championship, but this year, he is sitting on the best equipment he has ever had and feels as though he is a legitimate contender. The results back this assertion up. Johnson talks about his mistakes, his growth, and how he has taken the points lead in Pro Stock Motorcycle.
Richardson is one of the greatest Sportsman drag racers ever. After some time away from the sport, he is back. His confidence is high and his attitude highly positive. The man is having fun and plans to race for championships on the divisional and national level. The man who has done it all has goals, and we're all going to get to watch him try and make them happen.
Two great chats on this episode of the Insider!
