SPENCER PIGOT JOINS SCREAMING TALENT SQUAD
"Talented junior makes the switch to Gillard"
Indianapolis, Indiana -- May 15, 2008 -- Screaming Talent and H Power are pleased to announce the signing of SunTrust Junior driver and Snap-on Stars of Karting Junior Intercontinental A (JICA) front runner Spencer Pigot. The Florida pilot will compete with the Screaming Talent squad for the rest of the Snap-on Stars of Karting Championship presented by IndyCar as well as selected German Championship events aboard a Gillard chassis.
"We are excited to have Spencer join our squad," stated Screaming Talent's Jay Howard. "We really believe in Spencer and his abilities and are looking forward to helping him achieve the results that he deserves."
Making the switch last week, Pigot has already traveled to Texas to complete his first highly anticipated test with the Screaming Talent squad. Testing the Gillard chassis and H Power prepared Parilla, Pigot was up to speed as he circuited the Denton, Texas facility. Looking comfortable in his new ride, Spencer was thrilled with how the test progressed as he turned some of the quickest times the track has ever seen and is looking forward to the Mazda Race of the America's at New Castle Motorsports Park in two weeks time.
"Spencer has always been a driver that we have had our eye on," stated Howard in a recent phone interview. "He puts 110% into his driving and drives every lap like it is his last one. The entire Screaming Talent squad is anticipating the next event at New Castle Motorsports Park."
Pigot, who is a multi-time champion, showed true championship potential with some decent results last season. Wanting to make the next step, Jay Howard and his Screaming Talent crew will look to turn those decent results into strong podium finishes and dominating race wins as they look to fight for the Stars of Karting national championship.
Looking forward, Pigot will travel to Germany on Saturday to compete with the PDB Racing Team in the German Championship Series. Having already completed one event where he ran solidly in the top ten, Pigot will look to fight for victory overseas.
