I started seeing Johnny Hopper YouTube videos a year or so ago and loved his sense of humor and brutal honesty. I quickly researched him as I didn't know much about him or how he was qualified to be so critical of certain aspects of the sport. Turns out, much like the "Legend of Joe Dirt," the Johnny Hopper story has many layers. This sport can take raw talent and turn it into broken dreams, and unfortunately, his racing usually ended in heartbreak and disappointment more than glory.
This sport has left more than a few of us broken and disappointed. The industry has a way of turning it's back on anyone who challenges the status quo. Johnny is using his newfound recognition to help make positive changes for the next generation of racers. Take a listen to The Legend of Johnny Hopper!
