Olive Hill, KY

Hello, I'm Gunner Johnson from Olive Hill ky. I got into dirt track racing when I was 10 years old I got to drive a go kart for Charlie Schwartz and race was his grandson. The feeling you get when you strap on that harness put them gloves on and flip down your Shield that is what fuels my passion for racing. The biggest challenge I've had so far just getting people to respect me because I'm 15 they look at me as a joke and laugh. My first year in dirt racing I placed top 10 in the points at three different tracks and won Rookie of the Year. I run a mini stock and a modified, with the help of champion after Chase my dream of getting into a Swartz late model. Everyone has to believe in someone at some time and if you don't believe in me I will never do anything but make you all proud to be on my car and for us to be champions!
