Johnson picks up Thursday Thunder win
It was a busy night during Atlanta Motor Speedway's Thursday Thunder with drivers in all divisions competing in double features.
For Tina Johnson, it was also a night where she drove her Legends' car across the finish line in front of the rest of the field to capture the second Masters' Division race of the night.
Johnson has been racing well all year with top five finishes in each of her six starts. Johnson began the night in second-place in the Master's Division just one point behind Skip Nichols the all-time race winner at the track in Hampton.
The points race should again stay tight thanks to Nichols' victory in the first Masters Division race of the evening.
He crossed the finish line just one spot behind Nichols in the second Masters race of the evening. Johnson took third behind Mike Kennedy in the first race.
Josh Hicks, who started the evening tied with Ashton Winger in the Bandits Division, could gain ground after a wild night of double features in the Outlaw Division.
Although Winger won the first Outlaw race of the evening, he was disqualified in the second race of the night.
Hicks. who moved to the Bandolero Outlaws Division this year, had a roller coaster night on the track. After starting in first place in the first feature of the evening, Hicks finished seventh.
The East Coweta Middle School racer recovered for a solid run in the second race of the night, taking second place behind Jensen Jorgensen.
Newnan's Alton Clark also raced twice in the Outlaw Division. The Newnan drive was sixth in the first race and seventh in the second feature.
There are still for more races in each division at Thursday Thunder.
