Dick Johnson Racing is Australia's oldest operating motor racing team. Founded by Dick Johnson in 1980, the team has won seven Australian Touring Car Championship titles (five of them by Johnson himself) and has taken three wins in Australia's premier motor race, the Bathurst 1000. The Gold Coast-based team race four Ford Falcons in the International V8 Supercars Championship, one bearing Dick Johnson's long standing racing number 17, used by Dick's son Steven Johnson. The team was based out of Johnson's family home in Brisbane's southern suburbs for most of its existence, before moving to a large specialist workshop and museum in Yatala in the late 1990s.

The team's current drivers are Dick Johnson's son Steven Johnson, himself a veteran of touring car racing, emerging rookie driver James Moffat and Steve Owen. The team's fourth car is a satellite operation for Triple F Racing driven by Dean Fiore. Queensland Raceway is the team's home circuit and test track
