ppc Racing Makes Change To Truck Program

(MOORESVILLE, N.C.) -- ppc Racing's co-owner and general manager, Keith Barnwell issued the below statement today:

"Effective immediately, ppc Racing and Fred Wanke have parted ways due to philosophical reasons pertaining to the race team," said Barnwell. "We appreciate the effort Fred has given. We were highly successful in Daytona, winning the pole and finishing in the top-five.

Since then, we have struggled in testing, race preparation and in the races at Atlanta and Martinsville. We owe it to our sponsor, Power Stroke® Diesel and International Truck and Engine Corporation, our driver, Terry Cook, our manufacturer, Ford Motor Company and to all employees at ppc Racing to put together an operation that is going to compete for race wins and championships.

We wish Fred the best and will move forward, naming a new crew chief in the near future. We are developing a short list of candidates and will begin interviewing immediately."
