Johnny Herrera Gearing Up For Lucas Oil ASCS Speedweek

Johnny Herrera Gearing Up For Lucas Oil ASCS Speedweek

Bryan Hulbert – BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (June 4, 2018) Taking this past weekend to rebuild and rework his Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 45x following a crash the week before in Las Cruces, N.M., Johnny Herrera is down to minor details as he prepares for the Lucas Oil ASCS Sizzlin’ Summer Speedweek.

“We’re almost ready to go. Right now we just have a couple things to finish up and we’ll be ready. We had to fix a few things after we got tangled up in southern New Mexico, but we're good. Nothing major,” commented Herrera.

On his last outing during Memorial Day Weekend at the Southern New Mexico Speedway, Herrera had an up and down weekend with the New Mexico shoe rebounding to a top-five finish following a crash the opening night of the Salute to Indy.

“We got taken out by another car but got everything rolling the next night and finished fifth, so it ended up begin a good weekend. I always enjoy getting the chance to race close to home where I can spend time with my family and friends like Royal at Mesilla Valley Transportation as well as Mike and Kathy at CSR Garage. Without people like them supporting this team, I wouldn’t be able to do this.”

Along with Speedweek kicking off this weekend, Herrera is also making sure everything is in place for the Series’ swing to the 47th Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by the Skagit Resort and Casino, happening June 21, 22, and 23.

“We have a lot of racing coming up so we’ve been, I don’t want to say saving our equipment, but we’ve been selective so far. I’ve only had the one engine, so I didn’t want to get a lot of laps on it, but we should have our spare back this week. Speedweek can change the whole dynamic of your season, so we're looking to run strong and be ahead going into Dirt Cup.”

The 2018 season marks the 34th year of racing for Johnny Herrera which includes over 140 victories in various forms of Sprint Car competition. For more information, and to keep in touch with the man called “Hollywood”, log onto to http://www.johnnyherreraracing.com.
