CLOVIS, Calif. — Three proven winners are uniting in an attempt to win two of sprint car racing’s biggest races.
Two-time World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series champion Jason Meyers and crew chief Brian Bloomfield will be uniting with CH Motorsports, which won the 50th annual Knoxville Nationals with Tim Shaffer driving.
Meyers and Bloomfield will join the CH Motorsports No. 83 for the Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway and the Knoxville Nationals.
In addition, the duo will use engines provided by Charlie Garrett in the car owned by Aaron Call and Janet Holbrook.
“I am really thrilled about this opportunity,” Meyers stated. “It is exciting that Janet and Aaron, not only contacted myself, but Brian Bloomfield as well. They are assembling a great group of people and I have always believed that one of the biggest part of being successful is having the right people.
“Janet and Aaron are putting together the right people and are giving me a great opportunity to win two races that I don’t have a trophy on my mantle from. I just wish it was summer, because I cannot wait to work with Aaron, Janet, my longtime crew chief and good friend, Brian, and Charlie Garrett.”
While the CH Motorsports team has won the Knoxville Nationals, it has never won the Kings Royal.
“We know going into these big races you really have to put yourselves in a good position,” explained Call. “That includes before you even go to the race track. We have the equipment to do it. We won the Nationals in 2010 and have improved our Knoxville program since then. The people are as important as the equipment, so we thought with Jason driving the car and Brian calling the shots would be our best option to have a shot at winning both races. We are excited about it and are really looking forward to July and August. We could not be more delighted that everyone decided to come on board to put this deal together.”
“We are beyond thrilled to bring Jason and Brain back together in our car,” Holbrook said. “Between the two, they have numerous wins and we are hoping that we will be able to provide them the opportunity they need to add two key wins to their list.”
Meyers recently ran the West Coast WoO swing with Tarlton Racing.
“It was great getting back in the car to run the west coast Outlaw races,” Meyers explained. “It is great to have these races under my belt with the series prior to our summer plans at Eldora and Knoxville. This was a good warm-up for me and I can’t wait until I can get behind the wheel of the 83 car this summer.”
