Aboard a Rock River Powersports Yamaha YZ250F, Johnson grabbed the $750 Toyota Certified Used Car holeshot award and never looked back during the Arenacross class main. Although challenged by Brock Sellards for much of the race, Johnson focused ahead and took his first win of the series.
"I’ve been wanting this for a while and I really need to thank my team, mechanic, sponsors and Andy Moore,” Johnson later commented. “We still have a ways to go, but this is a great start to the new year.”
Coincidentally, Johnson was wearing the SPEED TV helmet cam which will be seen on Arenacross television on SPEED later in the year.
Team owner Andy Moore said, “It’s been a tough season with a down economy and I want to thank all the sponsors that have supported us through thick and thin. We could use all the help we can get right now and with Keith getting us his first win, we couldn’t be more excited for the remainder of the series and then Supercross.”
