COLBY JOHNSON GETS MIDGET RIDE FOR 2021 SEASON 

PENNGROVE, Calif. (March 25, 2021) – Colby Johnson has landed a ride to pilot a midget for Morris Motorsports.

Johnson will tackle all 11 Bay Cities Racing Association races as well as some USAC Western States Midgets shows and the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series events in his home state of California toward the end of the season.

“It will be around 20 to 25 races this year,” he said. “I’m grateful to Del Morris and the team for the opportunity. I can’t wait to get started this weekend.”

Johnson will make his season debut with the team this Saturday when he visits Bakersfield Speedway in Bakersfield, Calif., for the first time.

Johnson noted that he’s only made two midget starts during each of the last two years, making this year his biggest test in midget competition.

He will also race his family owned 360ci winged sprint car a couple dozen times, including at the Trophy Cup as well as during select Sprint Car Challenge Tour and Kings of Thunder 360 Sprint Cars races.

“I’m looking forward to a great year in both the midget and the sprint car,” Johnson said. “Hopefully we can adapt quickly this Saturday and we can produce a successful outing.”
