Johnny had a good weekend back at his hometown track, Southern New Mexico Speedway in Las Cruces, NM. On the opening night, he won his heat and was running towards the front when he hooked the outside edge of the track and lost control of his car. He was credited with a 22nd place finish. Friday and Saturday were much more kind for Johnny. Friday, he ran 2nd in his heat and was one spot out of the redraw and started the feature in 9th. Johnny pulled away for a convincing win. In the Finale he led 49 of the fifty laps and his brother Stormy got around him coming to the checkers to steal one away from Johnny.
