Jim Johnson

Jim made his first run down the quarter mile at age 16 in his Olds powered ’37 Ford. He was lucky to live in Edmonton spending time with Gary Beck, Bernie Fedderly, Gordie Bonin and many other prominent drag racers. He campaigned an Alcohol Dragster and Funny Car at the peak of his racing career. Jim retired to Campbell River in 2005.
