Business as Usual for Elite Racing in 2010

It will be business as usual for Elite Racing as they head into the 2010 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series season ...... sort of.

In fact, the entire crew, headed up by World of Outlaws Sprint Car veteran crew chief DJ Lindsey, is returning for the full season.

The only change is the driver who occupies the seat of the No. 14, Jason Meyers. The Elite Racing team will not be changing drivers; rather, it is the driver who has changed. Meyers is a World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship contender. What was all familiar territory to the Clovis, California driver who will feel closer to the championship in 2010.

"Last year was a big learning year for our team," said Meyers. "We are still learning all the time, but we have a new level of comfort heading into the 2010 season."

"DJ Lindsey's back, the whole crew. Nobody's changed; all of my guys are back."

Being completely ready for the most versatile dirt tour in 2010, Meyers', who finished second overall in points, performed with admirable skills on tracks across the country. With another year under his belt and a race-ready team, a championship is certainly not out of the question.

"We are running the full year; we have a great shot at the championship. This year should be a lot different than last," added Meyers .

Meyers and crew chief Lindsey tested numerous items in the recent test at Ocala Speedway, Florida on January 27 - 30.

In addition to all the Elite Racing crew coming back for 2010, Elite Racing's sponsors are also again on board.

"Our partners and sponsors are paramount to our team's success and we are very proud to have all of our partners back for the 2010 season. At Elite Racing, we strive everyday for perfection and to have our partners stand behind our efforts in this tough economic climate speaks volumes' of their commitment to our team. We will continue to create new ways to provide improved return on investment for all of our partners as we contend for the 2010 championship," said Chris Luck, managing partner for Elite Racing.

"We had a great start to the 2008 season in Florida but then stumbled a little in 2009. The entire team has worked very hard through the winter and we look to repeat our 2008 start at this year's season opening races at Volusia Speedway," said Lindsey.

"Each year we want to build on the previous," continued Meyers. "We learn more and more every time I get behind the wheel, and that growth will eventually develop into a winning attribute. I feel like we have been competitive in the past but just need that extra push for the championship. I know that it will only be a matter of time before the No. 14 will be back in victory lane."

Elite Racing will kick off the 2010 season at Volusia Speedway on Tuesday, February 2nd in Barberville, FL with a full week of racing which include:

Feb. 2 Open Test Session Volusia Speedway Barberville, FL

Feb. 3 Allstar Circuit of Champions 1 Volusia Speedway
