MOORESVILLE, North Carolina (January 25, 2010) - - In an effort to improve their performance for the 2010 racing season, Sheltra Motorsports officially announced today the completion of the team’s move to Mooresville, North Carolina from Whitesville, Kentucky.
The veteran ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards team also announced several organization changes for the impending season including the addition of a new Crew Chief and several key team members.
Jon Wolfe, a fixture in the Motorsports arena for several years will call the shots for 23-year old driver Patrick Sheltra in 2010. Wolfe takes the reins after a stint last year with Eddie Sharp Racing. Wolfe’s healthy resume and leadership qualities made him a perfect fixture at the “new” Sheltra Motorsports.
In addition to Wolfe, the team welcomes Brent Glastetter, Brandon Hylton, Matthew Roberts and Samuel Schram to its line-up.
Ryan Chism, Chris Knight and Rob Moss made the transition to North Carolina from the Sheltra’s Kentucky-team roster.
Sheltra Motorsports is located at 217 Rolling Hill Road in the Lakeside Park community.
“Obviously, the move shows how dedicated we are to making a statement this year,” said Car Owner Grace Sheltra. “We know that North Carolina, particularly the Mooresville area is the place to be. We are proud of the move and the new family members we’ve acquired.”
For Sheltra, nicknamed “Mr. Showtime”, he is equally excited about the team’s announcement.
“I have a good feeling about the upcoming season,” said Sheltra, who will embrace his fourth-year of competition in ARCA. “We’re going out there to win races this year and ultimately win the championship. The move to North Carolina, the addition of Jon (Wolfe) and the rest of the new guys just inches us forward to making those dreams a reality.”
The team has every right to be excited about its upcoming trip to Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway for the Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 at Daytona. In December, Sheltra wheeled his No. 60 Dodge Charger to the second-fastest time overall during ARCA’s annual pre-season test in preparation for the Super Bowl event for the ARCA Racing Series set for next Saturday, February 6, 2010.
