Ron Read MotorSports expands into new building to gear up for 2003 SCCS season.
Sterling, VA--Ron Read MotorSports (RRMS) announced today its intent to field one, maybe two cars in the new Stock Car Championship Series (SCCS). In order to prepare for the 2003 season, RRMS recently expanded operations by moving into the new facilities at 45720 Woodland Road, #115, Sterling, VA.
The SCCS series premiered last season and is expanding this year with eight eastern U.S. venues and expected television coverage. The team is currently preparing the new 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix for the Series, which begins in April. RRMS put a proverbial toe in the water by fielding a team for two SCCS races last year, finishing ninth and tenth respectively. RRMS competed in the NASCAR Weekly Racing Series in 1999, 2000 and 2001, winning a NASCAR Weekly Racing Series Track Championship at Old Dominion Speedway in 2001. RRMS also plans to enter a car in the Trans-Am race during the Washington, DC Grand Prix weekend in July 2003.
Australian native and racecar driver Ron Read is owner of Ron Read MotorSports, and is founder and president of Apollo Technologies, a prominent Falls Church, VA office machines supplier. A nearly 30-year veteran of racing, Read sees tremendous potential for RRMS in the new SCCS. "MotorSports is a difficult business. As a result, there are very few active race shops in the Washington, DC metro area. The people who are successful, as we have been year after year, are those who not only build, maintain, drive and understand a high performance car, but who also understand the business elements of motor racing," said Read.
RRMS is competing again in the SCCS because of the Series' growing popularity. "The SCCS organizers are leading this Series in a thrilling direction by combining two of the most fan-friendly elements in all of motorsports. The Series delivers the excitement of stock car racing and the driving challenges of first class road racing venues," said Read. "SCCS uses NASCAR stock cars. If you park one of these stock cars in a parking lot, people will notice it and identify with it," he added.
