Biography

Career: 19 event titles (16 FC, 2 TF, 1 TAFC)

Tommy Johnson Jr., driver of the Make-A-Wish Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Funny Car sponsored by Doug and the late Terry Chandler, enters 2019 teeming with confidence and looking like the squad to beat coming off of a strong showing in 2018.  

It was in the second-half of the 2018 season that the Make-A-Wish team, which remains under the leadership of John C ollins with assistance from Rip Reynolds, really caught their stride. Johnson and his team qualified in the top half of the field at all 12 events of the back-half of the schedule, including a hot streak of three consecutive No. 1 qualifiers during the Countdown to the Championship playoff chase. It was the first time in Johnson’s career to secure consecutive poles. 

At seven of the final ten events, Johnson powered the Make-A-Wish Dodge to the semifinals or better, including two of his three 2018 final round appearances during that stretch. 

Closing out the year with consistency and a proven combination fuels Johnson’s belief that the success the Make-A-Wish team enjoyed at the latter part of the 2018 season will carry into 2019. Couple the setup with the introduction of the new Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat body at the start of the year, and Johnson’s 2018 accomplishments, which include 31 round wins and a third-place finish which awarded him a free Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat to use as his ‘daily driver’ in 2019, are certain to be upstaged.
