BRISTOL, Tenn. -

Greeneville drag racer Allen Johnson believes he will finally break through and win at the Bristol Dragway this weekend.

Johnson won the NHRA Pro Stock series championship in 2012, and has won at numerous other venues, but has never been able to win at the track he calls home.

"You know it's going to happen in 2014," Johnson told News 5 WCYB Thursday.

"We're working hard at it man. This place has just been tough for us to get a win at but it's just going to make it that much more great when we get it."

The Thunder Valley Nationals get underway Friday at the Bristol Dragway.
