Tommy Johnson back in NHRA
The team has yet to release any information and team sources said the deal is unofficial.
Johnson last raced full time in the NHRA in 2008, when he finished 18th in the funny car standings. He updated his LinkedIn profile on Wednesday to say he is a top fuel driver for Don Schumacher Racing.
Don Schumacher Racing has two teams in the top fuel division. Tony Schumacher recently won his sixth top fuel championship in a row and his seventh overall. Cory McClenathan finished third in the 2009 NHRA top fuel standings.
Don Schumacher Racing also has a three-car funny car team with Ron Capps, Jack Beckman and Matt Hagan as drivers.
Johnson, who has won 10 NHRA races in his career in funny cars and top fuel, is married to NHRA driver and drag racer Melanie Troxel.
