Johnson steps up into Super2 with NAPA

Jett Johnson to race NAPA Auto Parts-backed Ford Mustang in Super2.

15 February 2024

Third generation racer Jett Johnson will step up to the Dunlop Super2 Series category in 2024, competing with AIM Motorsport in an ex-Tickford Racing Gen2 Ford Mustang with the backing of NAPA Auto Parts.

The new drive is another step in his rise through the motorsport system. Johnson won the 2022 TA Muscle Car Series before taking second place in last year’s Dunlop Super3 Series driving a Nissan Altima.

In 2024, Johnson returns to a Ford – the brand that is synonymous with his family’s legacy – and is excited about the season ahead.

Johnson will be part of a two-car Mustang team under AIM Motorsport, with Zane Morse driving the second car. Renowned engineer Erik Pender will tune Johnson’s Mustang each race weekend.

“It’s great to continue my motorsport journey with NAPA Auto Parts into the Dunlop Super2 Series,” says Johnson.

“I tested the Gen2 Mustang at Winton recently and it was really fast. It’s the best race car I have ever driven and I’m really looking forward to the season.

“Last year was terrific to learn the circuits in a Supercar, understand how to get the most out of the tyre in qualifying and really prepare myself for the next step into Super2.

“It’s a big step, but it’s a challenge that I’m ready for. This simply isn’t possible without the support of Titan Caravans, NAPA Auto Parts, all of my other partners and of course my family. They have my back and I’m really excited for the 2024 season.”
