MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Officials at Empire Racing, LLC and Mason Mitchell Motorsports announced today that the two teams have formed an alliance in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards.
With first class equipment and the FR9 Engine Program from Roush-Yates Engines, Mason Mitchell Motorsports and Empire Racing will work together to provide a high quality marketing platform in the ARCA and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series as well as a competitive driver development program.
“We are looking forward to this venture as a long term relationship between Empire Racing and Mason Mitchell Motorsports to become the driver development team to go to,” said John Bellesfield, Empire Racing Team Manager.
The alliance will reunite Mitchell, who made his ARCA Racing Series debut in 2012, with veteran crew chief Jamie Jones. In the 4 starts the two made together last season, they earned four top 10s and two top fives. The two will look to reignite the success they found together as Mason completes the 2013 season under the Empire Racing banner.
“I am honored to drive for Empire Racing and call this my home. With Happy Cheeks and my crew chief Jamie Jones back with me, I can’t wait for Pocono” said Mitchell.
Mitchell has competed in 10 ARCA Racing Series Races this season and is currently in seventh place in the points standings.
