I thought Johnny was crazy when he said he was buying a TT. He was just starting to compete every racing for wins in the spec class. But he said F' it, he knew he wasn't getting any younger. Couple years later and here he is! Sure Jonesy ran that truck the bulk of the race, but Johnny is no slouch. Dude can wheel and he has worked hard for a long time to get his fitness and skills in check! Props to both him and Jesse and Vance! Well done boys!
It is my understanding the truck was built trying to stay light, so possibly no secondary jack ? Or had they had earlier issues, and were now relying on their secondary ?Seriously!?? That one heck of a jack failure for a brand new truck! Don’t get me wrong... but no back up??? Or was there more to the story??
He did not quit, they had a DOUBLE airjack failure on the truck. He literally DROVE it on the rim until there was no rim left and just dragging on the rear housing, then that broke and the truck literally would not move. He tried as hard as he could to get it to the finish! The truck is still sitting there they have no idea to get it out of the crap spot its at.Once again another pathetic excuse to quit. Very sad!!! There are still a bunch of racers out there making it happen and he's on the private jet back home.
