Hobbs heading to Charlotte for EasyCare Vehicle Service Contracts 100.
Sunny Hobbs will attempt to qualify for the 6th ARCA RE/MAX series event at Lowe's Motor Speedway this coming Saturday night, May 18th. 54 cars are currently entered. Although a last minute entry, Sunny hopes to make the field and continue in her effort to gain valuable experience in the ARCA series. To her benefit, Hobbs will be driving the #91 Ford Taurus as the second car of a two-car effort for Andy Belmont Motorsports. "Andy's experience at these larger tracks and in ARCA should help me get up to speed quicker this weekend."
"I am excited to be racing at Charlotte and am looking forward to more ARCA racing this season. It's challenging, to say the least, to be running one-race or last-minute deals without much sponsorship support but I'm determined to make it work. I'm just gonna keep showing up when I can and getting myself seat-time" Hobbs said.
For this event FastTrack NASCAR and Apparel of Melbourne, Florida has teamed with Sunny as the primary sponsor. Bruce Varon, owner of FastTrack says, "Sunny is a serious racer and I am happy to be a part of her racing effort."
Lowe's Motor Speedway is a 1.5 mile paved oval in Concord, NC. The ARCA race begins at 5:45 p.m. on Saturday. The event is a prelude to NASCAR's same-night All-Star event - The Winston. The EasyCare Vehicle Service Contracts 100 will be televised on the Speed Channel May 19th at 8:00 p.m. and re-aired May 20th at 1:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
Hobbs competed in her first two ARCA events in 2002 - Daytona International Speedway, the Discount Auto Parts 200, finishing 31st on the lead lap; and at Atlanta Motor Speedway, qualifying 19th and finishing 33rd, due to oil pump problem on lap 72.
