Artistic Rendering of The Ragin Cajun Jason Johnson Wins at Devils Bowl
Johnson wins Night 1 of the Texas Outlaw Nationals at Devil's Bowl Speedway, dominating all 25 laps in the evening's feature event, after winning the Craftsman Club Dash from the pole and turning out the fastest time in qualifying.

Jason Johnson said, "It’s one of these nights you always imagine and you dream of, We set quicktime, won a heat, won a dash, won a feature. That’s a first for me, so hats off to this crew: Jeff, Jacob, Phillip. They’re working their tails off, and it’s a lot of fun to drive right now, It feels great to be back in Victory Lane."

This is Johnson's second win of the season, fourth in points standings and putting him ahead of Daryn Pittman. This makes his seventh career series victory. His first one was at Texas Motor Speedway 14 years ago.

Johnson led flag-to-flag, Brad Sweet was working his Napa Auto Parts/ Kasey Kahne Racing No. 49 up from five. From the bottom, he made a pass for second over Jason Sides between turns three and four, but then chose to follow Johnson on the top and came in after him.

Brad Sweet said, "It was a fine line. I moved up to the top a little bit, I think if I would have committed to the bottom and hit it a few more times we would have been a lot closer there at the end. Or maybe I would have been able to get in there. But hats off to Jason Johnson. He did a great job."

Jason Sides, had been running second throughout the race, lost it in the final laps and dropped back to 8th, leaving 3rd place to Logan Schuchart, who had been running in fourth.

David Gravel having won the night before, managed to make his way up from the back of the pack, however it wasn't enough, leaving him in 14th. Last year's night one winner, Joey Saldana place 4th just out a trip to the podium.

The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series will return to action today for the final night of the Texas Outlaw Nationals at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, TX.
