Johnson claims Second VRS win at North Georgia

By Chris Tilley

CHATSWORTH, Ga. — May 29. Ronnie Johnson of Chattanooga, made his stake and claim to the Volunteer Racing Series with the $3,000 victory at the North Georgia Speedway Saturday.

This was Johnson’s second win of the season in just three events held on the tour so far. Johnson took the lead on the 19th lap of the 40-lapper to become the only repeat winner of the year.

Four cautions slowed the event. The first yellow would wave on the eighth lap as Mark Vineyard slowed in turn two, then the next yellow would wave on the 21st lap as Gary McPherson slowed on the speedway.

On the very next lap, the yellow flag flew as Jamie Perry and Brian Hickman collected one another in turn four and the final yellow waved on the 28th lap as Freddy Smith slowed in turn four with a rear flat tire.
