Grubb Motorsports 2008 Press Release

Post by Grubb Motorsports » Fri Feb 01, 2008 10:07 pm

As Opening Day 2008 draws even closer, the Grubb Motorsports team is getting very excited as to what this next season holds for us. The 2007 season turned out to be a major disappointment, with motor failures and other mechanical failures hurting the teams' performance. Despite this, the team has been very busy over the past few months and is feeling very good about this coming year.

As the beginning of 2007 brought about much change to the team, 2008 has been rather quiet. We will continue to use our two Maxim (Big Max) Chassis that we purchased from Mark Coldren at the beginning of last season. WIth only 21 races on our main car last season, we have two relatively fresh cars. The car that will be used as our backup car this season only has about 10 races total on it from when Mark Coldren ran it, as we never used it in 2007.

We have officially switched to HP Engines for the 2008 season, and are very excited. We switched over towards the end of last season, and have a new motor sitting at our shop for this season. Our new motor produces a lot more power than the motor that we used for the majority of the 2007 season, and we can't wait to see how it does at the "high power" tracks of Williams Grove and Port Royal Speedways. We feel that the switch to HP Engines will put all of our problems behind us, and allow us to move forward in '08.

The schedule for 2008 has a little more than double the amount of races on it than the amount that we ran last season. After only being able to race 21 races last season, roughly 45 shows are scheduled for 2008. Port Royal will continue to be our "home track," with special shows at Williams Grove, Bedford, Hagerstown, and possibly Selinsgrove on the schedule as well. Our season will begin on February 25 at Williams Grove Speedway.

The very interesting and highly talked about driver/crew chief combination will stay intact for the 2008 season. With Cale being just 19 years of age, 17 year old Jordan Givler will return to the team as crew chief for the second season with the 19 car. Andy Pepple and Stevie Smith will return to the team as well, as they have been a fixture with Grubb Motorsports since 1999, when Cale began his first season in Go-karts. Former crew member Denny Mellot will also be returning part time to lend a hand on a part-time basis when time permits as well.

The Allied Milk Producers are returning for their third year as primary sponsor on the 19 car. Purina Mills, Inc. and The Keeler Company, Inc. both return to the team in 2008 as well, providing the majority of the funding. Claycomb Excavating, Guyer Brothers Inc. Utilities Contractor, Keystate Ag Service, Metzler Brothers Transport Inc., Jack White Signs, Fay’s Custom Candies, Pancho's Racing Products, Castrol Oil & Lubricants, Monarch Cleaners, and ISC Racers Tape round out the list of financial backers for 2008, and we are very greatful to have them with us.

In addition to our sponsors returning to the team in 2008, we are very proud to welcome TNT Tractor "N" Trailer Mobile Repair Service, Inc. to our team. TNT plans to be fielding their own 360 sprint car this season, and we want to wish them the best of luck. We look forward to a long partnership between our team and TNT Tractor "N" Trailer Mobile Repair Service, Inc.

We are also very excited to bring our car to the track this coming season. We have extended our trailer making it 40 feet in length. In addition, our cars are also freshly powder coated in Ford blue. Our paint scheme will remain mostly the same but the car will have a little different look to it when it comes to the sponsors.

Be sure to check our team's website,, for updates and pictures of the car in the upcoming weeks.

Thank you,
Grubb Motorsports
