DENVER, NC – RACE 101 will make its ARCA Racing Series debut this weekend with a most unlikely pairing.
Mountain Man – of A&E smash reality show Duck Dynasty fame – is sponsoring the RACE 101 entry piloted by Karl Weber, in Sunday’s ARCA Racing Series event at Madison Int’l Speedway.
Weber is a 16-year-old racer and he has raced a RACE 101 prepared super late model for the past few seasons. Mountain Man is Tim Guraedy, and he is hoping to promote the launch of his new website MountainMansWorld.com with the motorsports marketing initiative.
The opportunity to go ARCA racing was unexpected, and RACE 101 founder Tony Blanchard and crew spent countless hours preparing the No. 3 Chevy Impala for Weber to race in the Herr’s Live Life with Flavor 200.
“Opportunities like this are rare in racing,” said Blanchard. “It’s not every day we get the opportunity to leverage our RACE 101 brand in a series like ARCA with Mountain Man on board.
“We got the car together and tested at Hickory Motor Speedway this week. Karl did a good job, and the car performed well. Madison will be a different challenge, but we are ready.”
“It is going to be a great experience,” said Weber. “I want to thank Mountain Man for the opportunity to help promote his new website. I am a huge fan of Duck Dynasty and this is really going to be cool.”
