New Racing Team: Junior Johnson Racing

Hall of Famer Junior Johnson has created Junior Johnson Racing (JJR). Why? He’s hoping to use the team to propel his young son, Robert, into the Sprint Cup Series. Junior plans to run this team from shops on his Hamptonville estate—yep, surrounded by animals and all. The new team has names behind it like Keith Barnwel, who will act at the executive vice president and general manager.

Robert Johnson is currently scheduled to run the full K&N Pro Series East schedule and also plans to drive in other Late Model events. And, in preparation, Johnson hired two veteran mechanics with K&N experience—smart move.
