Ken Johnson (born November 28, 1962 in Memphis, Tennessee, United States) is a former driver in the CART series.

Johnson began his professional racing career in Formula Super Vee, winning the SCCA Pro National Championship in 1985. In 1986 Johnson attempted the first five International Formula 3000 races for BS Automotive. He qualified three times and finished 9th at Vallelunga circuit. That fall he made one American Racing Series start at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. In 1988 he made his CART debut at Laguna Seca for Hemelgarn Racing and finished 12th, scoring one point - good enough for 36th in the championship. In 1989 he again drove in the Laguna Seca CART race, this time for Dale Coyne Racing but his engine expired six laps into the race. He later made 3 starts in the SCCA World Challenge in 1990 and finished 8th in the Toyota Atlantic race at Long Beach in 1992.[1]
