luke_johnson_crandon_7_8_13The 2013 TORC Series presented by AMSOIL has been a non-stop battle in the Pro Buggy class for Luke Johnson.  Luke’s been duking it out with some of the top short course buggy drivers in the class all season, simultaneously dealing with the harsh weather conditions that have cursed each track so far.  This past weekend at Crandon International Raceway was no different.  Luke put on a show for “The Big House” and earned his fifth straight win in Pro Buggy and more impressively his first career win at Crandon International Speedway.

Having skipped out on a quick trip back to his home base in Southern California after Bark River, Luke headed straight for Crandon and prepped his vehicle for one of the sports biggest stages.  Track conditions were unfavorable, as sporadic storms rolled through Wisconsin.  Practice on Friday was called off and track officials granted Saturdays qualifying only one lap.  After that practice lap, Luke decided to take a gamble that in the end would earn him another trip to the first place podium.
