Johnny Chapman (born December 14, 1967 in Statesville, North Carolina) is an American stock car racing driver. He currently competes part-time in the NASCAR Nationwide Series and Camping World Truck Series.
Johnny Chapman has won 40 races in NASCAR's Late Model Stock Division as well as being a two-time Goody's Dash Series Champion on his way up the rankings in the late 1980s and early 1990s. In 1997, after running a few one-off races he signed a contract to run the #89 Sherwin Williams Ford in the NASCAR Busch Series. He had three top fifteen finishes that year, including his best major NASCAR finish of 11th in the Winston Motorsports 300 on June 13. His career died down for a while as he ran a handful of races in the next few years in the NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Chapman has run one NASCAR Sprint Cup race, which came in 1993 in the #64 Bahre Racing Pontiac. He finished 36th. In 2008 and 2009, he drove full-time in the #90 Chevrolet for MSRP Motorsports, a start and park team in the Nationwide Series. He also started and parked for Gunbroker Racing, Wyler Racing, and SS-Green Light Racing in select Camping World Truck Series races. For 2010, Chapman has been tabbed by K-Automotive Motorsports to drive their #92 Dodge in the Nationwide Series. Along with Dennis Setzer in the #96, he started and parked to help fund the #26 of Brian Keselowski. After briefly driving Morgan Shepherd's 89 Chevrolet briefly in 2010, he raced for Fleur-de-lis Motorsports at Texas. In 2011 he drove a Nationwide car for Rick Ware Racing as a start and park operation to support Ware's other Nationwide cars. He also drove a few races for SS-Green Light Racing in the #07 truck. Chapman primarily makes his living as a start-and-park driver for underfunded and unsponsored teams.
Chapman is married and has two children.
