Spraker Racing Enterprises
July 8, 2011
MOORESVILLE, North Carolina (July 8, 2011) - - Officials from Randy Hill Racing (RHR) proudly announced today that Mooresville, North Carolina-based Spraker Racing Enterprises (SRE) will lead the team’s inception in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards and NASCAR Nationwide Series in 2011.
Jeff Spraker, a former NASCAR and ARCA driver, will guide the rookie team as crew chief beginning next weekend at Iowa Speedway during their ARCA Racing Series debut in the Prairie Meadows 200. Spraker, a native of Latham, New York, has more than 30 years of experience in the Motorsports industry and has had the privilege to work with some of the sport’s most talented drivers in both divisions.
Spraker, also a car owner himself in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, will serve as a mentor for team owner Randy Hill, a Texas entrepreneur with experience in agribusiness and real estate who is making the leap to stock car ownership from the Lone Star State.
“I’m pleased to join forces with Spraker Racing Enterprises,” said Hill. “Jeff and his team have been an absolute pleasure to work with and we’re expecting a great relationship with them for many years to come. We knew in order to establish and grow our company that we needed to align ourselves with an organization that already has been established and has great credibility.”
Spraker is equally excited about working with Hill and his staff beginning with the 11th ARCA Racing Series contest of the year next Saturday afternoon. “We’ve carefully put this program together,” said Spraker. “We’re excited about our driver and the relationship with Mr. Hill and his group. Being new to the industry, he knew what he needed to do and after several months of talking, I’m exciting to be officially affiliated with Randy Hill Racing.”
While RHR has not chosen a primary manufacturer for its operation yet, the team will utilize Ford Fusions and Chevrolet Impalas.
Mike Bliss, Dexter Bean, Drew Brannon, Clay Campbell, Kerry Earnhardt, Joey Gase, Ron Hornaday Jr., P.J. Jones, Alex Kennedy, Brandon McReynolds, Steve Park, David Ragan, Scott Riggs, David Reutimann, Michelle Theriault, Darrell Waltrip and Smokey Yunick are just some of the drivers that Spraker, who also has starts for himself in the ARCA Racing Series (ARS), NASCAR K&N Pro Series (NKNPS), NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) and NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) has been affiliated with in one capacity or another through SRE.
