Carswell Motorsports to Defend 2010 World Crown Title With New Driver
Daniel Hemric to Pilot the #98 in This Year's Event
In 2010, Carswell Motorsports celebrated one of their biggest accomplishments as a team, winning the World Crown 300 Super Late Model event with driver Justin Wakefield. In 2011, the Georgia-based team parted ways with Wakefield, putting their return to the event in jeopardy. However, the team owned by Jake and Deanna Carswell put North Carolina driver Daniel Hemric in their car late in the season, and will return to defend their title in the 28th Annual Rheem World Crown 300 on Sunday, November 13th, with the new driver behind the wheel.
"We are super excited about going back to the Crown to defend our title," said Jake Carswell. "The circumstances are different than we thought they were going to be, but we are looking forward to going to the track with Daniel behind the wheel. We had a great run in September with Daniel in the car in the CRA race at Gresham, so we are looking for a good run in the World Crown."
Hemric, the 2010 Legends Million champion at Charlotte Motor Speedway (NC), has raced in three events this season in the Carswell Motorsports #98 Super Late Model, finishing in the top four in every race. He is looking for another solid run in the World Crown.
"It is an awesome opportunity for me entering the World Crown at one of the best facilities in the country with one of the best teams," said Hemric. "I think we have one of the best shots going into the whole deal. I am excited about it."
