Every racer knows that at some point, they are going to have an accident. For Jerry “Monza” Johnston, he tagged the wall on Sunday.

During his “Race Your Way In” against 16-time Champion Mike Murillo, he was defeated by the Texan at Maple Grove Raceway in Mohnton, Pennsylvania. Towards the finish line, Monza began to lose control of his ride.

“Well, we had a little issue today,” Team Monza 405 said on Facebook. “100% my fault, just pushed it a little too far. We will be headed somewhere to get it fixed ASAP. Shouldn’t be too bad but we will see.”

The car has damage to its side and its door. Plus, there may be additional damage, as Team Monza 405 showed a picture of the engine.

The teams will work with Monza and his team to get it fixed. Or fans may suggest a local repairman to fix it while they are still in Pennsylvania.

The tour heads to New England Dragway in Epping, New Hampshire next weekend. The team hopes to have the repairs fixed by then.

Monza will have to do “Race Your Way In” at the Epping filming, as well.
