Veteran big-block modified racer “The Doctor” Danny Johnson is in search of a new ride after team owner Chris Gennarelli announced Thursday he would not return to the orange No. 27J.

“Me and Danny have talked about the upcoming season and we were not able to come together on an agreement,” Gennarelli said in a post on Facebook Thursday. “We just were not able to come together on an agreement that would work for the two of us.”


The pairing of Johnson and Gennarelli have been a formidable duo across the Northeast. The two have won races up and down the East Coast together.

Most recently Johnson secured a ride in the Gary Mann-owned No. 27J modified during the Short Track Super Series season. His future in the Super DIRTcar Series, where Johnson is a four-time series champion, remains unknown.
