There are few things that stand the test of time. I’ve been racing micro sprints now for 15 years now and when I first started I bought a car from Stallard Chassis. In 1999 I purchased my first 600 chassis from Stallard and every year since then I’ve bought at least one new car (sometimes two) for myself. In those years I’ve assembled or been influential in selling many cars. My friendship with Mark Stallard started the day I met him in 1998, and in 1999 I lived with him for 2 months during the summer to race and learn. Together we’ve won many races and championships.
However there comes a time to make a change and try new endeavors. So for the next racing season I will be swapping chassis builders and join PMP Racing. Utilizing Stan Yockeys knowledge and enthusiasm about this deal will make the transition easy. I’ve driven a PMP before in 2010 in Deming Washington (for Larry Jenne), so I have some understanding of what to expect. I’ve also assembled a PMP for a customer in 2008, so I’m no stranger to what lies ahead. The biggest hurdle at this point is time, there is not much time left until the 2012 season begins and I assume I’ll be non-stop in the month of February.
One other key area of change comes in the form of more sponsorship dollars this season. Ralph Wren of Accurate Machine Works has come on board in a big way to help out this season and this complete deal would not be possible without his help.
