NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series racer Allen Johnson made history this morning at Florida's
Palm Beach International Raceway (PBIR), as the Team Mopar® driver launched on his first-ever
run in his new 2010 NHRA Pro Stock Mopar Dodge Avenger.
"It was very smooth on that first run," said Johnson. "We wanted to make sure the parachute and
brakes worked, so I let up about half-track. We were very conservative. It was at .995 seconds
around the 60-foot mark. It was real smooth."
Johnson and his J&J Racing crew plan to test the HEMI®-powered Mopar Dodge Avenger through
Wednesday, Dec. 16, at PBIR in preparation for the car's race debut at the 50th Annual Kragen
O'Reilly NHRA Winternationals in Pomona, Calif., Feb. 11-14, 2010.
"We're going to get after it during the test runs in the afternoon," Johnson said. "We'll run it as
much as we can, maybe about five or six passes. I'm encouraged by the first run and excited to see
what we can do with it when we go all out."
