2014 was a very challenging year for Kenney Johnson Motorsports as we made the move up from the NEMA Lite's to the NEMA Midgets.
Kenney started the season at the Waterford Speedbowl in March and blew the engine in the first round of practice. We missed several races as we built a new engine.
The biggest race of our season was The nationally telivised Boston Louie Memorial at Seekonk Speedway in July. Kenney had an excellent run in this race bringing home a 6th place finish.
We closed out our NEMA Midget season at the World Series of Auto Racing at the Thompson Speedway. This is the fastest track we run at and Autocraft engine ran great bringing Kenney an 8th place finish.
Kenney also made a return to his dirt racing roots in 2014. We put together a dirt midget and ran a couple races to test the waters for next season.
In November Kenney made the 1000 mile trek to the North Florida Speedway to race with the Southern States Midgets. Kenney finished 2nd bringing home his best finish of the season.
After the fun and success we had on dirt, a brand new Spike Dirt Midget is on the way for 2015...

Johnson finished 2nd At North Florida Speedway
Lake City, FL – Kenney Johnson left no doubt that he remembers how do drive a dirt car, dominating the Southern States Midget Association feature Friday night at North Florida Speedway.
Johnson took the lead from Shane Butler going into turn 1 at the 1/2 way point of the race. From there he built up a full straightaway lead. The engine began to loose power with a few laps to go. Kenney began to nurse the car around the track in hopes of making it to the end, but the engine blew up on the last lap. Kenney was able to coast to the finish, but dropped back to 2nd place.
He was able to get valuable track time and learn alot that will help him when he comes back in Feb. for the Gator "DIRT" Nationals.
