Hickory Champ Aims at Pro Cup Rookie Title
Stancill Joins Forces with DLP Motorsports
Ayden, N.C.-Ben Stancill, 2006 Hickory Motor Speedway Super Late Model Truck Champion, will team with DLP Motorsports to compete in the 2007 Hooters Pro Cup Series, running the No. 24s Dodge Charger in hopes of a successful season.
Stancill, a 17-year-old high school senior, will compete in the Southern Division while setting his sights on winning Hooters Pro Cup Rookie of the Year. Racing since he was seven years old, Stancill has won numerous championships in go-karts and legend cars. Included in his list of achievements is the 2006 Rookie of the Year at Hickory Motor Speedway. When he is not racing, Stancill enjoys fishing, hunting, and taking part in activities at his school.
When questioned, Stancill smiles excitedly and says, "I love driving Pro Cup cars!"
Last year, Stancill had the opportunity to run three races, qualifying on the front row in the first race.
"I learned a lot from that first Pro Cup race, and I know that I will carry more momentum and confidence in this 2007 season," said Stancill. "I will also get more experience this year, running the full season and working with DLP Motorsports owner/crew chief David 'Buggy' Pletcher. I am looking forward to working with Buggy; he's a smart crew chief and has a lot of knowledge and experience to bring to our team."
As Pletcher settles into his new race shop in Mooresville and new position as both owner and crew chief, the pair continues to make plans and is committed to run the entire Pro Cup season.
"I am looking forward to working with Ben, he has shown some great talent," Pletcher states. "His abilities and dedication are going to help make this an exciting first season."
