Terrell Motorsports with driver Doug Grieg to compete full time with the Sunoco Super Series in 2003.
Salem, Ind. (January 6, 2003) -- Dan Terrell, owner of Terrell Motorsports, announced today that they would compete full-time with the Sunoco Super Series in 2003 with Indianapolis, Indiana's Doug Grieg at the wheel. This will be Terrell's first time as a car owner with a late model, Terrell has owned and raced Legend Cars for several years. Terrell Motorsports is based in Martinsville, Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis.
"We are really excited about moving up to race in the Sunoco Super Series in 2003," remarked Terrell. "I have purchased some good equipment including the Lefthander car that Matt Hagans raced last season with the Sunoco Super Series. Matt has committed some time to help us with our setups and is going to work with Doug on getting familiar with the different tracks we will race at this season. I believe Doug has the talent to be very competitive with this great series!"
Grieg has raced for 15 years in several different types of racecars. Grieg has had tremendous success racing Legend Cars with eighty-nine feature wins and eleven championships including one this past season racing for Terrell Motorsports. Grieg has also competed for many seasons at the Speedrome in Indianapolis in the Outlaw Figure 8 division were he won the Carmel Sod Spring Fling Championship last season. Grieg has seven ASA starts and has attempted to make a couple of Sunoco Super Series events in the past, but suffered blown motors in practice both times.
"I am really looking forward to the 2003 season," commented Grieg. "In the past I tried to make some Sunoco Super Series shows, but the equipment I had was not what I needed, that will change in 2003, Dan Terrell is going to give me the equipment it takes to compete with this series. Our goal is to be competitive and make all the races, if we can have some good runs hopefully we will be in contention to win the 2003 Rookie Of The Year title.
The Terrell Motorsports team will have sponsorship help from Robertson Drywall, Half Pint Towing, Roby Trucking, and DWT Land Holdings. The team will have a second car as a back up for Grieg, and team owner Dan Terrell may race it in a few selected Sunoco Super Series events.
