DRYDEN, Texas (November 27, 2009) - - When the Sheltra family sat down to supper Thursday afternoon to celebrate Thanksgiving, the group had an extra guest. Corey LaCosta, the ARCA Racing Series representative from Racing Electronics joined the Sheltra’s for their annual Texas feast as one of the two winners of this year’s Sheltra Motorsports Hunting Extravaganza.
LaCosta arrived in the deep isolation city of Dryden, whose stunning population without the Sheltra clan is a staggering 11 on Wednesday and was able to experience the Sheltra’s off-season activities before giving his meaning of “Thanks” on Thursday.
“The Sheltra’s are terrific people and I’m having a blast,” said LaCosta who will depart back to North Carolina on Saturday afternoon. “The entire Sheltra family is a blast around the racetrack any ways but to see their lives from a different prospective outside the racing scene truly shows how close of a family they are. I appreciate their hospitality and I’m hoping to be able to hang out with them away from the track more often.”
He added, “It’s very quiet out here, but it’s very relaxing. To experience all the different angles of wildlife like I have this week has truly been amazing. The memories here will last a lifetime.”
For Sheltra, a native of Indiantown, Florida, he’s equally enjoyed the company of LaCosta.
“Corey’s a blast,” said Sheltra, who will take a breather from Texas next weekend and head to Cincinnati, Ohio to be honored for his ninth-place championship finish this year. “We had a good number of entries for the Hunting Extravaganza, and I would like to thank everyone who placed an entry but for one of the winners to be Corey was a welcomed surprised. I appreciate what he has done for the teams in ARCA this year, especially ours. Now we’re giving back to him in our own Sheltra form. It’s just been a lot of fun!”
Ray Sasser, the other recipient of the Sheltra Motorsports Hunting Extravaganza will make his expedition before the Sheltra’s return to Florida in January.
The 23-year old Sheltra has 67 ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX starts to his credit with one career victory at Salem Speedway (April 2009). During his ARCA tenure, Sheltra has accumulated 10 top-fives and posted 22 top-10 finishes. A third place qualifying effort at Rockingham Speedway (April 2009) is Sheltra’s best time trials efforts to date. He has controlled the ARCA field five times for 109 laps.
