The confidence EMCO have shown in our group with this commitment is a huge boost for our team” he stated.

NASCAR continues to grow in popularity and EMCO is excited about expanding our market presence along with closed wheel racing in Canada.

We look forward to 2012 and will be in the winner's circle when Noel gets win # 1.” Noel Dowler’s racing season will begin in a few short weeks as the team is traveling to compete during Speedweeks at New Smyrna Speedway in Florida. “We have a car that DJ Kennington has been preparing for us to race” said Dowler. “It’s a great opportunity to get some more experience against some good competition before the NCATS season begins” he added.
