Johnny Sauter is one of the stars of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series that will race Friday night under the lights at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Johnny comes from a family that is seriously intro racing. His dad Jim was a racer with 76 NASCAR Cup races under his belt. Two of his brothers also raced in NASCAR, Tim and Jay. Another brother Jim Jr. raced in regional events, and he has a nephew who also races. I mean...if that isn't a "racing family," I don't know what is!
Johnny is the 2016 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion, and currently leads the points this season. He has a great track record at Charlotte, which includes two top-fives and four top-10s in nine starts. Will this be the weekend that Johnny gets his first win at Charlotte? I'd say there's a good chance! Here is my chat with Johnny where we talk about just that and a few other things.
