Patrick Sheltra Prepared To Defend Salem Title
"Indiantown Native Has Sights Set On Domination, Three Times Over"
SALEM, Indiana (April 7, 2010) - - ARCA Racing Series (ARS) driver Patrick Sheltra returns to Salem (Ind.) Speedway this weekend ready to do more than just defend his Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200 presented by Appliancezone.com title. The Indiantown, Florida native wants to leave the bullring short track with the point's lead.
Should the 23-year old driver master his tasks, he'll move onto his next goal which will consist of capturing the trio of three victories in the April ARCA stretch which consist of Salem (Ind.) Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway and the breathtaking Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway. The proposal is no easy task but Sheltra has acquired a new taste of determination and "want" thanks to the surrounding of his Sheltra Motorsports team.
"Not only am I looking forward to Salem this weekend, but I'm eager for Texas and Talladega too," said Sheltra, who sits fourth in the championship standings entering the third race of the 2010 season, just 35 points from the lead. "Salem is one of my favorite races on the schedule and I know that we have a good car for this weekend, so I'm more than ready to get back after it."
And if the fame of returning as the defending champion isn't enough, Sunday's race will mark the return of Cincinnati, Ohio based Buffalo Wings & Rings (BWR) on-board as the team's primary marketing partner for Sheltra's seventh ARCA start at the historic southern Indiana short track. Last April, Sheltra Motorsports took BWR to victory lane in their first taste of stock car racing at Salem Speedway.
"I am stoked to have Buffalo Wings & Rings back on-board this weekend," sounded Sheltra. They are a great company with awesome employees and the food is delicious! We're going to have tons of guests from the surrounding Buffalo Wings & Rings Indiana stores plus some contest winners in the stands for the race and I would like nothing more to take them to victory lane on Sunday!"
