NHRA Lucas Oil Route 66 Nationals at Joliet, Illinois

Two Class Wins for Mopar Teams


Allen Johnson and Tommy Johnson Jr. hoist their trophies. For both drivers (who are not related) it was their first trip to the winner's circle this season and their first national titles earned at the Chicagoland facility.

Chicago is Mopar's kind of town after earning a pair of national title wins on July 12 at the 18th annual Lucas Oil Route 66 National Hot Rod Association Nationals at Route 66 Raceway thanks to victories by Allen Johnson in the Pro Stock class and Tommy Johnson Jr. in the Funny Car category.

"All of us at Mopar are very proud of Allen Johnson and Tommy Johnson Jr. for doubling up today with their wins at Chicago," said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO - Mopar Brand Service, Parts and Customer Care, FCA. "We're very pleased to see both the Dodge Dart and the new 2015 Mopar Dodge Charger R/T in the winner's circle yet again. A lot of time, investment and hard work went into designing and building these two vehicles and we've very pleased at the success they have shown in such competitive fields."
