Steven Johnson (born 6 September 1974 in Brisbane, Queensland) is an Australian V8 Supercar racing driver. He is the son of former racer and now team-owner Dick Johnson. He has competed full-time for Dick Johnson Racing since 2000.

Johnson's best season result was in 2001, where he led the championship for two rounds and took two round wins, including the last-ever Canberra round win, where he made a pole to win in the 1st race, before finishing the rest of the races in the top 5. Near season's end, he dropped to 4th, still his best ever effort. Then came a period he would rather forget, finishing the 2002 and 2003 seasons well outside of the top 10. He improved to 10th in the 2004 season. He was looking for a top 5 in 2005, but had a bad Bathurst 1000 to place him outside the 10. Johnson continued to race with DJR for 2006 and 2007.

In 2007, Steven Johnson recorded his best Bathurst 1000 result with a podium finish in third.

Steven is married to Bree, and they have two children, Jett and Lacy.
