Champion Oil, a recognized leader in racing lubricants, congratulates Johnny Herrera who jumped behind the wheel of his own Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 45x. Johnny Herrera took on the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products at Creek County Speedway this past weekend with a charge from 16th to 6th in the A-Feature.
Clinton, MO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/17/2019 --One of the few times in 2019 that Herrera will be on track after swapping roles to Crew Chief for Harli White; that role is one of the main reasons Johnny was in competition. "Creek was a race for me to apply the setups we've been working on for her and be able to feel what she's feeling," explained Johnny.
Asked what the biggest takeaway from the night was, Herrera replied, "It's being able to actually see what the setups are doing so we can communicate better. I think setup wise, we have a good package and this showed a few places where I can go even further to make the car more drivable to for Harli."
As for the next time, Johnny will be behind the wheel, time will tell.
"We'll definitely race again this year. There are a few races we are looking at, but I just need to thank everyone who supports me and has made it possible to continue racing.
The 2019 season marks the 35th year of racing for Johnny Herrera which includes over 140 victories in various forms of Sprint Car competition. For more information, and to keep in touch with the man called "Hollywood", log onto to http://www.johnnyherreraracing.com.
