Speaking to MCN, Johnston said: “We have had three great years and enjoyed a lot of success, so I am very grateful for all the help that the boss Phil Reed and my crew chief, Jamie Ferguson have given me.
“I have a few good offers on the table already for 2017 and I am looking forward to getting back in the mix.”
