As far as Luke Johnson is concerned, winning is the name of the game. 2013 has been an unforgettable season for the Pro Buggy rookie driver. The PEAK Motor Oil Red Bull Undead Power #14 Pro Buggy has found the podium eight times in ten races and every single one of the those have been a win, including five consecutive to begin the season. Luke’s successes are remarkable, considering he had confirmed his program only weeks before the first race at Eldora Motor Speedway. Mathematically, with his win this weekend at RedBud, all Luke has to do is start Saturdays race at Crandon to clinch the Pro Buggy Championship.
In the opening brawl to the race weekend, it was the top four drivers in the division leading the field of twelve. This time, it was Andy Zipperer out in front, followed by a close battle for second with Luke and John Frana, who sits second in points behind Luke. The two separated the gap between the rest of drivers and Luke displayed some of his best driving all season, charging on Zipperer while fending off Frana.
