Kenny Koretsky hopes home track offers bright spot in 2001 season
Mohnton, Pa. - - Kenny Koretsky will continue to campaign the Valspar Pontiac Trans Am, owned by Richie Stevens Racing, this weekend at the 17th annual Pep Boys NHRA Nationals presented by Greased Lighting at Maple Grove Raceway, near Reading, Pa. Although he was not at the wheel, Koretsky's regular ride was "demolished" in a test session accident at Englishtown, N.J. several weeks ago, forcing the change to a backup ride.
"I want to thank Richie Stevens Racing and their sponsor Valspar for loaning me their backup car so that I might continue to race for the remainder of the 2001 season. Without their help it may have been impossible to race again this season after The New Auto Toy Store/Cyclo Industries/Bucks County Kawasaki Chevy Camaro was wrecked," said Koretsky.
"We always look forward to going to Maple Grove Raceway and considering all the bad luck we have experienced this season it will be nice to get back to our home track. We always look forward to visiting with friends and this is especially true in light of all the tragic events that have occurred in our great country.
"Since we don't have the opportunity to put The New Auto Toy Store/Cyclo Industries/Bucks County Kawasaki Chevy Camaro in the winner's circle at Maple Grove, we would like nothing better than to thank Stevens Racing and Valspar Paints by driving the car they provided us to victory. It would be a bright spot in what has otherwise been a down year for Team Koretsky," concluded the Richboro, Pa., driver.
