Johnny Ezell, known as Johnny Bracket Racer, is arguably one of the best bracket racers in the country right now. With multiple wins over the few years, including a Million Dollar Race win, it’s safe to say the Baton Rouge, LA racer is at the top of our list.

In fact, Ezell won $30,000 earlier this year at Spring Fling Million in Vegas. We can go on and on about his numerous wins over the past decade; he’s a machine. But, let’s talk about Bristol.

You know you’ve made it to the top when a media source publishes an article on your race challenges. Well, he has and we are proud.

After a stellar weekend at the SPARCO Fall Fling 500K at Bristol Dragway, he ran into some major chassis issues on the final day, Saturday. After rocking the scoop a few times at the finish line and taking the 4th round win against Cameron Fredrickson, the chassis broke bringing Ezell to a stop after several flying sparks.

Ezell, who is a chassis builder himself, was able to repair the car between rounds but was not allowed back into competition.

It’s safe to say the competition had a sense of relief, although it ended Ezell’s weekend.
