Steve Welk Joins Aiken Racing for the Cooper Tires Championship Series Opener in Sebring
Franklin, WI. - Steve Welk, 2003 Formula Ford 2000 Rookie Contender, has reached an agreement with Aiken Racing to compete in the first two events of the Cooper Tires Championship Series. The first event is the double header that will run in conjunction with the 12 Hours of Sebring. The second event is the double header at Road Atlanta in April. Welk's familiar number 57 will be supported by Briggs & Stratton and Sports Car Revolution for the Sebring and Road Atlanta events.
Aiken Racing and Steve Welk are looking to contest the entire Cooper Tires Championship and are actively searching for partners to insure that they can complete the Championship schedule.
"I am extremely excited about joining Aiken Racing", Welk commented. Aiken Racing team owner Marshall Aiken and I have talked a lot in the last few days to get this deal together and I think we will have a very good package going into Sebring. This will be the first time since 1999 that I will be returning to a championship in consecutive years, so I think both the team and I are looking for strong results."
Marshall is also excited about having the 21 year old Welk on board, "I am very pleased and excited to have Steve join our team. Steve had a strong top ten points finish last year and his past experience in the Formula Ford 2000 Zetec Championship brings a valuable asset to the team. Steve has proven he can run up front and I am confident he will continue to do just that."
