R.J. Johnson won the NASCAR Super Trucks season finale race and the Super Trucks championship by the narrowest of margins at Toyota Speedway at Iriwndale on Saturday night.
Johnson, a driver from Canyon Country, and Pat Mintey Jr. of Quartz Hill entered the 100-lap season finale in the Super Trucks division tied for first in the Super Trucks standings at the track.
Johnson won his eighth race of the season on a green-white-checker restart with Mintey close on his tail over the last two laps. It was Johnson’s fourth win in the last five races of the season. Johnson won his first track championship at Irwindale. His dad, Rod Johnson, won the NASCAR
Super Late Model championship at Irwindale in 1999.
