After two years competing in the CRA Super Series division and achieving the Championship, Welch & Wilson Motorsports is moving in a different direction for the upcoming years. In order to effectively promote our product, SealWrap Repair Tape, we feel our time and energy should be spent on a National level of racing and sponsorship.
Welch and Wilson Motorsports appreciate the opportunity to compete and be a part of CRA and have learned many valuable lessons which will enable us to move forward in the racing industry. The commitment it takes to own and operate a race team could not have been accomplished without the guidance, dedication and hard work of Crew Chief Scott Neal and Derrick Griffin, driver of the #4 SealWrap car. Derrick has earned the Rookie of the Year title and won the CRA Super Series Championship for the season. Scott and Derrick have done a fantastic job and we wish them well in their future opportunities.
We could not have made this happen without the contributions of the following team members: Mike Henderson, Jim Griffin, Derrick Layne, Brian Gerster, Jonathon Martin, Gordon Guffy, Brandon Lines, Pamela Neal and countless others over the course of the season. Many thanks to each of you for your support and commitment to the team.
Scott Neal personally thanks the following businesses: Paul-PPG, Cory-Advanced Racing Suspension, Robert-Hamke Race Cars, Jeff-Hamner Engines, Curt-Speed Media, Jack-Motion Motors and Clyde Moody – Hoosier Tire.
Jeff Welch and Curt Wilson would like to thank R.J. Scott and Glenn Luckett of CRA for all their help and support. They would also like to thank Hantz, Vandoorn, Lane, Turner, Tweedy and many others who have made the CRA Series the best short track series in the country.
Welch and Wilson Motorsports will be liquidating their transporter, race cars and equipment over the next couple of months. Please contact Scott Neal at 317-395-4774 for further information.
