Terry Chandler’s Make-A-Wish Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car


Career: 17 event titles (15 FC, 2 TF)

Tommy Johnson Jr., driver of the Make-A-Wish Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car sponsored by Doug and the late Terry Chandler, enters 2018 teeming with confidence.

In an effort to get a head start on the 2018 NHRA season, the team led by crew chief John Collins and assistant Rip Reynolds, opted to transition from the five-disc clutch setup they had been employing previously, to a six-disc clutch at the 2017 NHRA Finals in Pomona, Calif. The decision proved to be effective, enabling Johnson to drive past the competition and into the winner’s circle. Closing out the year with a win and a proven combination fuels Johnson’s belief that the success the Make-A-Wish team enjoyed at the 2017 season finale will carry into 2018.

The Latest From Tommy

We had such a good race car all weekend and to come up short second round, it’s just frustrating. It was an opportunity to make up some ground in points and we did a little. I still think we have a really strong car for the Countdown. On to St. Louis! #ReadingNats
Two really good strong runs here at @maplegrove & two runs where we learned what not to do. It’s a long season and you have your ups and downs and you just want to run well when it counts and that’s right now. We’re qualified 3rd and race Campbell in the first round #readingnats
