Marathon Petroleum’s Allen Johnson Hoping Dyno Work Since Reading Pays Dividends Going into Dallas

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. (October 11, 2016) – Marathon Petroleum Pro Stock driver Allen Johnson will head to Texas Motorplex this weekend for the 31st annual AAA FallNationals for the 22nd of 24 events in the 2016 season. After a troubled three-in-a-row, Johnson has been doing a lot of dyno work to regain his winning ways and end the season on a high note. “We had a lot of bad luck in the first three races of the Countdown,” Johnson said. “All three races we had problems and hopefully we’ve gotten rid of the bad luck and we can finish up the last three on a really strong note.” Johnson won this event most recently in 2012 during his Pro Stock World Championship winning season after he took out Erica Enders in the final round. “Getting that custom cowboy hat in Dallas after the win will always be a top memory for me when we got to Texas Motorplex,” he added. “I’d like to get another one this year!” Qualifying at the 31st annual AAA FallNationals will begin on Friday, October 14th with two sessions at 4:15 and 7:15 p.m. Two more sessions will be on Saturday, October 15th at 12:45 and 3:45 p.m. Eliminations for the event will be on Sunday, October 16th at 11:00 a.m. starting with Top Fuel.
