Eddie Sharp Racing Focused On Growth For 2007
Team Remains a Strong Force in the ARCA RE/MAX Series
DENVER, NC (October 26, 2006) -- The 2006 ARCA RE/MAX season has just wrapped up, and the banquet has yet to be held, but Eddie Sharp Racing is already planning for the future and expanding for 2007.
Eddie Sharp Racing's partnership with Cunningham Motorsports will not continue for the 2007 season. This will allow Sharp to commit his time solely on progressing the ESR team towards elite levels in ARCA and beyond. In 2006, drivers Michael McDowell, Ryan Mathews and TJ Bell all competed strongly in starts under the ESR banner. With a new focus for 2007, the entire Eddie Sharp Racing organization is focused on remaining one of the most successful teams in the ARCA garage.
"This organization was very successful all year long," said team owner Eddie Sharp. "We built the Dodge Driver Development program in the ARCA REMAX Series under a different banner, and now I have a chance to continue the tradition we started under my banner.
"It's just time for me to move forward. You either move forward and grow, or you get out. I have chosen to move forward."
Eddie Sharp Racing also has plans for expansion during the off season. They have a newly expanded relationship with Chip Ganassi Racing who fields a Dodge-based program in the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series as well as other partnerships with another Cup team to be announced shortly. Plans to expand the team's race shop in Denver, North Carolina, during the off-season are also underway as Eddie Sharp Racing gets ready for what just may be its most successful season ever.
"We learned a lot of things this year, both in racing and business," added Sharp. "You learn from things, which enables you to grow and that is what I am looking to do in 2007."
