Johnson reveals new look for TA2 Mustang

17-year old Jett Johnson will carry the support of NAPA Auto Parts for the remaining rounds of the 2022 PROMAXX Performance Exhausts TA2 Muscle Car Series framed by Hytek.

The grandson of three-times Bathurst 1000 winner Dick Johnson and son of Supercars race winner Steve has revealed a striking new look for his Ford Mustang TA2 featuring the iconic NAPA Auto Parts brand.

NAPA Auto Parts is the perfect fit for Johnson and the family dynasty that has made his surname recognised Australia wide and has also been inducted into the popular NAPA Know How Motorsport Academy as one of its premier drivers.

Johnson, who claimed his maiden circuit racing title in the 2021 Northern Series, is carving his own name in the sport. Having started in karts and competed in Hyundai Excels, Johnson debuted in TA2 in 2021 and immediately competed at the front of the field, scoring his first race win, round win and title in his freshman year.

“The thing I love about TA2 is that for young kids like me, trying to forge a career in the sport, the cars have a really raw driving style. They have no traction control, no ABS, they have a lot of power and all of the cars are the same except the different body shells for Ford, Chevrolet and Dodge.

The Academy is aimed at fast-tracking grassroots racing car drivers in Australia and New Zealand, offering exclusive and insightful content that can give them the edge over their rivals on and off the track.

Jett currently sits second in the 2022 series after a quartet of second-place finishes at the opening round at Sydney Motorsport Park.

The next round of the PROMAXX Performance Exhausts TA2 Muscle Car Series will be held at The Bend Motorsport Park in South Australia on April 22-24 at the Australian Motor Racing Series (AMRS).

All of the action will be live-streamed online with post-produced highlights on 7Mate.
