Default R.I.P. Junior Johnson

Junior Johnson, moonshiner turned NASCAR legend, dies at 88

Farming was a staple of the Johnson household, but so was the manufacture and high-speed transport of untaxed whiskey. Junior Johnson quickly became involved in both family businesses, sharpening his skills as a driver with his fearlessness in distributing liquor in hopped-up cars.

“The good whiskey runners were kind of cocky about it, like good race drivers,” Johnson told the Associated Press in 1991. “I guess I was pretty cocky.”

Legend has it that Johnson was never caught on the road. He was convicted of moonshining in 1956 after authorities staked out the family still. President Ronald Reagan pardoned him on Dec. 26, 1986. “No maybe about it. Best Christmas gift I ever got,” Johnson told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in 2007. Johnson now sells moonshine legally under the Midnight Moon label.

I once saw an interview where the interviewer asked. Out of all the cars you drove, what was the fastest car you ever drove? Johnson was dead serious and said it was a moonshine car.

I got the chance to meet and have a few words with him years ago at Bristol Motor Speedway.
He is a very soft spoken man and humble in every meaning of the word.

Junior will be greatly missed.

Yes, Junior will be greatly missed. His contributions will certainly live on.
