Danny Johnson Suspended?

141 posts in this topic

I've heard from a few people that Danny Johnson has been suspended for one super dirt series race... Is there any truth to this? I haven't seen anything online about it so I don't know. Let me know if this is true or not please. Thanks

I heard at Cornwall last night, that after the Big Block race he went over and punched Tim Currier in the face. Whether this is true or not I don't know.

I'll debate that, seeing as Tim stood next to me talking with Tommy Curtis Saturday night with no facial bruising.

I don't get to see him race too many times because I can't travel much farther than Utica and Syracuse, even those are 3 hour trips for me. So I'd hate to not be able to see him tomorrow. Does this mean he is suspended or what?

Okay, I heard about this last Tuesday at the Wheels. From a very reliable source. Saturday night I asked if it was true. I was told by another very reliable source it is the CAR OWNER not the DRIVER who is unable to attend Malta.

An altercation of some sort - without fisticuffs - supposedly took place between Mike Payne and Tim Currier's dad, not Tim himself.

So that would mean that car owners car is also not allowed? Does Danny have another ride?

Wouldn't that be for the 358 series then? I was under the impression that Mike did not own Danny's equipment that he raced on the SDS tour due to a conflict of interest with him being the head tech inspector.

I was told Mike Payne cannot attend. There was no mention of the car being banned. But I also did not ask.

Does that mean there won't be any tech at Malta?

I asked questions and that's what I was told. That's why - under advisement from certain Administrators here about "inside information" - I never mentioned it. I figured I'd be on DIRTvision listening to the event Tuesday and see what shakes out. :shrug:

no, it was the big block series race where the incident happened on July 1 at Cornwall. Mike Payne is most definitely the owner of Danny's cars... I have never heard of Mike being involved with thech for Dirtacr myself. But hey, I seem to learn something new every day on here.

DIRTcar announced Mike as the head technical inspector prior to Volusia. I know there was rumblings down there about Mike being the car owner and the tech inspector, but at that point it was my understanding that Mike still had some equipment, but Danny was only going to run it on the ROC tour, that way they avoided the 'conflict of interest' argument from the other race teams on the tour.

So what does that make him on the 27j - crew chief?

Does he own the #7 ride Danny has torn up the RoC with?

GT - I honestly don't know most of the politics behind the Johnson/Payne relationship, so I didn't ask all those questions. I just asked if Danny was suspended and was told it was Mike. And I would consider the person who gave me that info to be quite reliable.

Mike Payne was only tech guy in volusia and quit. He owns all 27j's and the 7z

Would have liked to see the veteran win the series this year but after this I wouldn't count on that happening. So let me clear this up... Danny will not be at Malta because he yelled at currier
