ODESSA, Texas – Josh Baughman is excited to announce that he is joining forces with Jason Johnson Racing for the 2014 racing season.
Baughman will pilot a second car for JJR at approximately 40 sprint car events across the country.
“Our home base will relocate to Rocky Mount, Mo., alongside the Jason Johnson Racing team for next year,” Baughman said. “We will become a satellite team for JJR. We will run 40 shows throughout the country. We may be in Missouri one weekend and Washington the next. It’s going to be a mixture of ASCS regional events throughout the country.”
Baughman, who just completed his first full season in 360ci competition, said he looks forward to learning under the tutelage of defending Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour champion Jason Johnson.
“With joining forces, I look forward to driving for JJR and representing the team on a different level,” Baughman said. “The JJR guys have a different demeanor as a team. I like how JJR represents itself. We want to be successful like JJR.”
Johnson, who has earned four championships as a driver and four as a car owner, said his goal is to help Baughman and his team progress into a consistent contender.
“We’re going to join forces and manage their team as well as ours,” Johnson said. “Our focus as a two-car team is to build an alliance with Baughman Racing with success for both teams. We feel with our knowledge and Baughman’s desire, we can help Josh achieve success quicker than on his own. Our goal isn’t about having two teams on the ASCS National Tour; it’s about getting him in the winner’s circle.”
