Inside Line Promotions - SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (March 31, 2022) - Kaleb Johnson will kick off an ambitious 2022 schedule this Saturday at I-80 Speedway.
Johnson plans on splitting his time between 410ci and 360ci winged sprint car competition with this weekend's show at the dirt oval in Greenwood, Neb., offering his first opportunity of the season in a 360 sprint car.
"Within the past year we haven't had the greatest luck there, but your first race each year is probably the one you're the most excited for because you've waited six months to get back in the car," he said. "I feel we're pretty prepared for this year so we're excited to get it started."
Johnson is pleased to return a great contingent of marketing partners with the addition of Cressman Sanitation, David Kramer Drywall and AB Custom Construction. Additionally, the team acquired a 410 engine on the heels of Johnson making his 410 sprint car debut last year.
"We're going to be doing quite a bit of both classes this year," he said. "We'll run weekly at Knoxville Raceway (in Knoxville, Iowa) in the 360 and at Huset's Speedway (in Brandon, S.D.) in the 410. I feel like running 410s will get me the most prepared and that's where I need the most seat time.
"My first goal is to get a top three in points at Knoxville. I feel we've improved so much there. It comes down to no DNFs and not making many mistakes. Other main goals are to make the 360 Knoxville Nationals A Main and get a top 10 in points at Huset's. That will be tough because of the quality of competition. If we can finish the races and not have to fix too much stuff I think we'll be all right."
Saturday's event at I-80 Speedway presents the lone opportunity for Johnson to hit the track prior to the Knoxville Raceway season opener on April 16. The opening night for Huset's Speedway is May 8.
