DREW SPRAGUE SIGNS WITH SEYMOURS

USAC competitor Drew Sprague is proud to announce his 2005 USAC Ford Focus Midget Series racing program will be in association with legendary USAC team owners Bobby and Mike Seymour of Seymour Enterprises,Marlborough, Massachusetts.

The partnership of Drew and the Seymours has been in play for over a year and included an inaugural outing in USAC Ford Focus Midget competition in the Fall of 2004 in Anderson,South Carolina.After qualifying in the 2nd position in a field of 12 racers a Lap 5 incident sidelined the race prematurely.However,the chemistry was formed between the driver and the team owners.

Drew will be at the wheel of a 2005 Hawk midget featuring state-of-the-art components.Seymour Enter- prises is the distributor of the Hawk midget chassis and Drew will be privileged to showcase the quality construction and handling characteristics that Hawk chassis are famous for.

Drew had this to say about the outstanding opportunity that he has been presented,"I have hoped to be able to join up with a team as high profile as the Seymour Brothers.Bobby and Mike have so much background in USAC midget competitions all starting with their years of involvement with their Dad,"Boston Louie" Seymour. That my newest racing assignment is with them is unbelievable...a dream come true.I have a big job ahead of me to live up to their standards but I have never been more prepared to race in my life."

Drew continued by saying,"I am honored to be in their seat.I will learn so much in this season as we work together.I do hope to make Bobby and Mike proud."

Bobby Seymour had these comments,"Drew is a great kid. Drew and I traveled to Anderson,South Carolina in the fall of 2004 where he competed in his first USAC midget competition with us.He showed to us what he had in that outing and we were impressed.Not only in his talent but as a person.Drew is the whole package and we are very pleased to be associated with Drew in his racing career."

Fast Forward Racing team owner and Drew's father,Jeff Sprague,offered these remarks,"We have been so fortunate since 1995 to have the finest people on earth assist us with Drew's racing activities.Since Drew took his first seat at age eight we have progressed from NHRA/IHRA Junior Drag Racing League,ASN Canada FIA karting,Skip Barber Formula Dodge to the current USAC midget effort.And there were numerous other racing involvements to add to all of that.Through these eleven years we have had the benefit of so many talented people...race car fabricators,driver coaches, engineers and phenomenal sponsors.That Drew has the privilege of the Seymours in his latest career effort is actually not a surprise.It is the same...the best people continue to support Drew.We could not do it without them."

Jeff continued,"Briggs and Stratton is the sponsor of this USAC program.When I mentioned phenomenal sponsors without a doubt Briggs and Stratton,"The World's Largest Manufacturer of Small Engines"is the epitome of that statement.Since 1995 the people and the products of Briggs and Stratton have powered Drew in in every level of competition with sponsorship.In 2005 and for eleven years Briggs and Stratton have been there to support Drew's career in motorsports.We are forever grateful for their belief in Drew as a person and as a competitor."
