Johnson, who won the 2016 Knoxville Nationals - the sport's biggest race - in Iowa in storybook fashion, had been a primarily part-time racer on various sprint vehicle circuits from 1998 until he went full-time on the Outlaws series, capturing Rookie of the Year honors in 2015. It was an honor and a privilege to work with him during his time on the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series trail.

The team also posted a link to a GoFundMe account where proceeds will go to the Johnson family.

"With the same courage, passion and vigor that he raced with each night, he fought valiantly to the end", Jason Johnson Racing said in a statement. On Twitter, Eliason described the crash as "the most violent I've seen" in a long time and later shared his condolences with the Johnson family including Jason's wife, Bobbi, and son, Jaxx. Pittman won the race.

"Jason was a great competitor and true ambassador for the sport".

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. noted that Johnson "went about things his own way and was really fun to watch". In sprint vehicle racing, a flip brings an immediate red-flag stop to the racing and fans wait for a signal from the crash scene that the driver is OK. Kyle Larson, Sunday's Sonoma polesitter, races sprint cars whenever he can and drove a Corvette pace vehicle for Saturday night's sprint auto races at Calistoga Speedway.

He won the 2016 Knoxville Nationals in an epic battle with Donny Schatz that will be forever remembered by Sprint Car fans everywhere.

Justin Wilson was killed when he was struck in the head by a piece of debris during an IndyCar race at Pocono in 2015. The popular Clauson was widely considered the best dirt-track racer in the nation.
