Johnny Beaber, Gibsonburg, Ohio, sprint car driver. Johnny's career actually started when he was 15-years-old under an assumed name to skirt the track rules at the time. Johnny's career took him all over the United States where he posted wins with the World of Outlaws and All Star Circuit of Champions and was respected as one of the best in the country. With over 200 career feature wins, he became a legend on the Western Pennsylvania circuit, winning championships at Tri-City Speedway, Mercer Raceway and Lernerville Speedway. He returned to race at the historic Fremont Speedway and won the 1985 and 1987 championships. He has posted 24 career feature wins at Fremont to be 17th on the all-time victory list. John posted track championships at Limaland Speedway and Attica Raceway Park along the way. Today, John and his family own and operate Beaberbuilt, a race car building, repair and fabrication business in Gibsonburg. John returned to the cockpit of a sprint car in 2009 and raced his way to victory lane at another Ohio dirt track.
