Keeping one race car going is a large undertaking, but imagine attempting to keeping as many as six cars going and competing weekly.

That is just what The J and C Racing team of Lebanon does as Chris Johnson and his family compete at I-44 Speedway.

Originally from Michigan, the Johnson family calls Lebanon home.

Chris Johnson, and his familiar 00 Modified; brother Tony Johnson, in his 0 Street Stock; cousin Michael Juergensen, in his 00 Street Stock; daughter and high school student Breken Johnson; in her Charger Car; and friend Sgt. Chris Kerperien and his 15 Modified, keeps them all busy.

In addition, Chris Johnson plans to race a Street Stock in a few events when the Modifieds aren’t competing at I-44 Speedway. He is looking forward to the 2017 Race season after an emotional up-and-down season in 2016.
