It was only a few years ago when Jake Johnson raced a Modified for the first time.

Fast-forward to the 2023 season, and the 20-year-old from Rehoboth, Massachusetts can officially call himself the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Sunoco Rookie of the Year.

Driving the legendary Ole Blue No. 3 for Boehler Racing Enterprises, Johnson competed in 13 of 18 events during the 2023 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season while splitting time in the car with Bryan Narducci.

Johnson, who made six NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour starts last season, collected one top-five and seven top-10 finishes across his 13 starts in 2023.

His best performance of the season came in his final start of 2023, which took place at Connecticut’s Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park on Oct. 8.

Johnson had arguably one of the fastest cars that day and battled championship rivals Ron Silk and Justin Bonsignore at the front of the field for most of the race. He led 22 laps that afternoon before ultimately finishing a career-best second to Silk.

So far, in his 19 career NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour starts spread across two seasons, Johnson has scored three top-five and 11 top-10 finishes as well as two Mayhew Tools Dominator Pole Awards.

If those numbers are any indication, the 2023 Sunoco Rookie of the Year could have a bright future with the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.
