Justin Johnson Looks Unbeatable at Toyota Speedway

Las Vegas driver Justin Johnson continued to prove that he is the one to beat at Toyota Speedway in 2010, capturing both NASCAR Super Late Model races at the Irwindale based half-mile on Saturday.

Johnson captured the pole for both races by more than a tenth of a second, and more than 60 of the 80 combined laps on the night. Johnson won the second race by more than five seconds. The wins were the third and fourth of his career at the track, and Johnson has won three straight races in the class.

In the first race, fellow Las Vegas driver and Vision Airlines Racing teammate Dusty Davis finished second, followed by Fontana’s Randel King. In race two, Filmore’s Travis Thirkettle pulled off a runner-up, with Davis finishing third.

Johnson leads Davis by 26 points after nine races. King sits just six points behind Davis for second.

Nick Johnston, a driver from Reseda, captured the win in just his second career stock car race, leading all 25 laps of the NASCAR S2 race. Laguna’s David Busby finished a career best second, with Andrew Porter of LaVerne capturing his first podium with a third place.

Arcadia’s Neil Conrad picked up the win in the Soutwest Tour Truck race, holding off Newbury Park’s Jeff Williams. Tom Mikla, from Gilbert, AZ, finished third.

On the smaller third-mile track, Darren Amidon of Santee picked up another win in the Legend Cars. Amidon has won the last two races. Point’s leader Brent Scheidmantle of Alta Loma finished second, two weeks after flipping down the front straight while leading. Cale Kanke of Frasier Park finished third.

Defending series champion Daryl Scoggins grabbed his fourth straight win in the NASCAR Mini Stocks race. The Sunland native beat Wildomer’s Ritchie Scoggins to the finish, with Alta Loma’s Rod Schmitt finishing third on his birthday.

Fullerton’s Amanda Poertner won her second Bandolero race of the season. Poertner beat Rancho Cucamonga’s RJ Stearns. Pomona’s Ricky Schlick finished third.
