Another racing loss this month! Jennie Johnson mother of Mark “The Turtle” Johnson passed away this past week. Jennie left this world to join her husband Don Johnson who passed away earlier this month. Jennie was a fun lady to be around always laughing and was just “Ma” to everyone who knew her. Our thoughts and prayers are with Mark and the Johnson family at this time for the loss of both parents within the same month. “ May the Lord Bless and Keep them Both Always”
