YORK Motorsport thinks BIG for 2005

2 September 2004 - Seattle, Washington -- Kevin York of YORK Motorsport was recently an invited guest of the Super Truck Racing Association of North America (STRANA) at the Road America round of the American Le Mans Series.

In his never-ending quest to experience racing vehicles of every sort, York spent time with the STRANA officials reviewing and experiencing the high- tech Class 8 racing rigs at the famous Wisconsin racing venue.

STRANA, under the sanction of the International Motorsports Association (IMSA), is a governing body for super truck racing in North America under the leadership of Executive Director Brian Till. Till, a former professional racing driver who now works for motorsports cable channel, SPEED, says STRANA is bringing a racing property to North America that motorsports fans will embrace.

"STRANA's creation is the result of months of planning, due diligence, discussions with people in the trucking industry and trucking industry media, with track owners and management, with those who run super truck racing in Europe and those who have run super truck racing series on this continent in the past," said Till.

"The FIA European Truck Racing Series as well as a similar series in Brazil, have been wildly popular with motorsports fans for years." noted York. "I'm of the belief that STRANA's efforts to bring such dynamic racing to North America are well founded."

Kevin, as a seasoned competitor with experience in multiple forms of racing series and vehicles, has reason to believe that this series will be very exciting to be a part of. To that end, he currently is engaged in the process of making contact with teams that will be positioning themselves to take part in the 2005 STRANA race season of six events.

STRANA's creation of the Super Truck Racing Series provides a platform that does not exist for the trucking and transportation industry in North America. Every business that is involved with the trucking and transportation industry will see that there is nothing more strategically correct for this industry to align its brands with.

Sponsors and suppliers of the Tonka Super Truck Racing Series and STRANA include Tonka, Haldex, Alcoa, ArvinMeritor, ZF Group NAO, Fluidyne High Performance, Stack, Spal, Shields, K&N, ATL, Racing Radios, TruckSkin, Stand-21, Detroit Locker and Pittsburgh Power.

Based in suburban Columbus, Ohio, STRANA is the governing body for class-8 super truck racing in North America. Its mission is to promote super truck racing and the trucking and transportation industry.
