Johnson, KOMA Unwind Return To SoBo Saturday

Rain, rain go away...
The KOMA Unwind Super Late Model team and driver Jerick Johnson return to the legendary South Boston (VA) Speedway Saturday night, for a second crack at the 150-lap Pro All Stars Series event rained out on August 17th. 

The KOMA Kar was positioned on the starting grid and ready to fire its engine when a steady rain began to fall over the speedway, forcing postponement of the event. 

“It has been an unbelievably rainy summer,” said Johnson. “I think we’ve lost more races to rain than we have run, which makes it tough to get any momentum going. We look forward to getting back to South Boston Saturday night – with a favorable weather forecast – and seeing what we can do.” 

The Koma Unwind/Godfather Motorsports machine is slated to start 19th on the grid Saturday night, after posting a time trail lap in 15.732 seconds before the rains came on August 17.  

Practice for the PASS Super Late Model, Pure Stock, Limited Sportsman and Late Model divisions begins at 2:30 PM Saturday at “America’s Hometown Track,” with time trial qualifying set for 5:30 PM. Pre-race ceremonies get underway at 6:45, with the 150-lap Super Late Model feature leading off the program at 7 PM.

About POW*MIA Awareness – Godfather Motorsports is proud to support the POW*MIA Awareness Campaign. Driver Jerick Johnson has long been an advocate for veterans’ rights and the United States military. He is a five-time Distinguished Guest of the American Legion National Convention and has earned numerous awards from other veterans’ organizations. Promoting and increasing public awareness of the POW*MIA issue has become his main goal. `Prisoner Of War: Missing in Action’ refers to any soldier taken prisoner by the opposing side during an action of war. It is not always known whether that solider is alive or dead, only that they are missing. Our goal is to remind our fellow Americans that the greatest tragedy of all is to be forgotten, and honor those who have given so much. Jerick thanks Godfather Motorsports for the opportunity to help increase awareness of this issue by carrying the POW*MIA logo on the No. 30 KOMA Unwind Chevrolet.
