Brad Keselowski comments
“The Snowball Derby is essentially an all-star race as it attracts some of the biggest names in short track racing, as well as some of my competitors from NASCAR,” said Keselowski.
“This is my first time behind the wheel at the Derby. I’m really looking forward to the race and very appreciative of Fr8Auctions coming on-board with me. Fr8Auctions has supported all levels of racing, so it’s great to partner with them for this particular event and bring together NASCAR and super late model racing.”
Tony Eury Jr will serve as the crew chief for Keselowski.
“Having the opportunity to work together again Tony Jr. and Pops makes this whole program even more special,” added Keselowski. “This is going to be a lot fun to be sure, but we are all racers, so we’re headed down to Pensacola to compete for a win!”
William Byron comments
“I’m excited to have U.S. Radiator join us for the (Snowball) Derby this year and for next year. They’re new to racing and we plan to give them a great experience,” Byron said. “I’ve really loved racing the Super Late Model this year with Wilson Motorsports. The guys have put together great cars and we’ve had lots of success with six wins. We’re looking to continue that with the Snowball Derby and more next year.”
