Title: Question about former racecar driver slick johnson?
Post by: Bryan Blanton on February 23, 2005, 09:32:06 AM
Does anyone know anything more about slick than i do i don't know much about him?

Was he a good driver i heard he ran at a few short tracks in north and south carolina.

Slick was killed in the 1990 arca daytona 200 the same race the emt guy got ran over or hit and didn't well maybe i shouldn't give full details what happened to the emt guy and the racecar drivers involved in the accident.

The emt guy was fine he survived i'm not sure if he recovered fully though.

Was it that accident or another in that race that produced the accident slick was killed in i've heard that race was broadcast on espn but i've had a hard time finding anybody who may have it.

The information i do know about slick is he drove short tracks a lot in the carolinas and won.

And he was a sometimes competitor in arca and grand national and eventually in winston cup.

As i said he was killed in the arca daytona 200.

I was just curious if anyone had any other info on slick i didn't know about or was unaware of i think he was 41 years old when he died.

I noticed even back then in arca they were accident prone and a few of their races were accident filled which is ashame because several good racecar drivers have come from arca.

He was mentioned on the 1990 daytona 500 broadcast since he tried or was going to try to qualify for the 500 that year.
