Allen Johnson's ambition for success provided the courage and motivation for his decision to move into the professional ranks of drag racing. Having competed in the sportsman ranks since 1977, he was aware of the time and work that was needed for the step up. With full family support, the 39 year old owner and driver, debuted the Johnson & Johnson Racing 1996 Dodge Avenger at the ATSCO Nationals in February 1996, competing in the Pro-Stock class.
When he is not racing, Allen owns and manages Greeneville Oil and Petroleum, an oil business located in Greeneville, Tennessee. He resided in the same northeastern Tennessee town with his two daughters, Heather and Kim.
Allen is an active member of the Greeneville Chamber of Commerce, a representative on AMOCO's National Board for the Children's Miracle Network, a member of the board of directors of TOMA and a sponsor for youth organizations. When not working or volunteering, he enjoys riding his Harley and golfing.
