Johnson won the $50,000 K&N Horsepower Challenge bonus event Saturday, $25,000 for winning Sunday's race and the $25,000 NHRA Sweep Bonus for winning both events. Johnson is the seventh Pro Stock driver to sweep both events in the 29-year history of the K&N Horsepower Challenge.

Johnson cruised to his second consecutive win of the season and second straight at this event with a final round performance of 6.713 seconds at 206.76 mph in a Dodge Avenger. His final round opponent Erica Enders-Stevens shut her Chevy Camaro off at mid-track.

Tony Schumacher (Top Fuel) and Cruz Pedregon (Funny Car) also were winners at the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event.
