PENDLETON, Ind. (January 9, 2004) -- After reviewing dozens of resumes, the American Speed Association looked inside their offices and appointed Don Holobeny as ASA Late Model Series Technical Director.
"The interest generated with this series made it an opportunity I couldn't pass up," said Holobeny. "I have always enjoyed the technical aspects of racing and having worked with the National Tour in recent seasons makes me anxious to begin this new part of my career."
Holobeny worked on a part-time basis with the ASA National Tour in 2001 as a technical official and served as Fleet / Facilities Manager since 2002. He begins his new position immediately as ASA Late Model Series Technical Director while continuing his other responsibilities.
"Don will be a perfect fit as technical director for the series in 2004 and will be vital to the future direction of the Late Model program," said Kim Shaver, ASA National Tour technical director. "He has been involved in a lot of projects at ASA Racing and has a tremendous amount of knowledge about the rules for the late models and with racing in general."
Holobeny began his motorsports career in the 1990s as a crew member for Indiana late model standout Matt Hagans, who competed full-time with the Sunoco Super Series and also made appearances in the ASA National Tour and NASCAR Kodak Southeast Series.
Holobeny will have his first opportunity to work with the ASA Late Model Series at the 2004 season-opening event on Saturday, May 8 at Madison International Speedway in Oregon, Wis.
