Mark Burch Motorsports – Humston and Burch 1M Ink Deal for 2011 Season

From Mark Burch Motorsports

NEWTON (August 30, 2010) – Seven events currently remain on the schedule for Chad Humston and the Mark Burch Motorsports team. We are eagerly looking forward to the 2011 season but at the same time don’t want this one to end. With seven wins under their belt, and a couple that got away, the team is confident heading to their next race along with being excited about planning for the future. “We have really come a long ways in a short time.” Stated Humston. “It’s been a great year, and we are looking forward to taking our momentum into a really strong finish of the season.”

Last year a win at Knoxville just didn’t materialize. This year the team has shown great improvement and now are one of the top teams favored to win each night. Team owner Mark Burch: ” Knoxville is still one of the toughest places to race at and win. The level of competition is nothing short of phenomenal. We have been really happy with our progress this season. We have had a chance to do a lot of evaluating during the first part of the season. Once we turned up the wick in June and July the results started to show.”

Marvin Brees, as always, is the driving force in our shop and at the track. His efforts are unmatched and his dedication unparalleled. He continues to strive as the backbone of our organization.

Dan Humston, the current Vice President of Corporate Operations, will be returning after a fierce contract negotiation. He will also be picking up the duties as Aerodynamic Systems Quality Control Manager.

Humston has had wins this season in ASCS, NCRA, HCS and at Knoxville . Chad is currently third in Knoxville 360 points. Mark Burch sums it all up: “First and foremost we have unfinished business at Knoxville . If we are mathematically in it, which we are, then I consider us the favorite. I wish Clint Garner and Dustin Selvage all the best, however they have everything to lose and we have everything to gain. The last two races should be a lot of fun!”

The entire Mark Burch Motorsports team would like to thank all of our families, sponsors and manufacturers for their support. None of this would be possible without them. We are all looking forward to building those relationships and commitments in 2011. Having Chad back behind the wheel once again gives us that consistency that is so important. This sport, like anything you do is all about the people. We have great people involved with us on every level from the track to the truck! We are looking forward to finishing out strong this season and returning to Knoxville in 2011.”

Vortex Racing Products

Vortex Racing Products is the industry leader in Sprint Car Wing design. From humble beginnings in 1995 where we began producing wings for our own use we quickly became engaged in producing wings for other race teams. Inspired by a life-long background in racecar design and manufacturing from our Dad, we (Paul and Lynton) continued to evolve into a company known for producing a product a little different from the rest. This ability to manufacture a Wing that is unique in design is what has been our success. With the use of our own race teams in Australia and America, we continually push the boundaries of design with an extensive testing program of our products each and every year. It is with our understanding of chassis design and manufacturing that we are able to communicate with our clients and tailor a wing package that best suits their driver, team and make of chassis. We call this,” The Vortex Advantage”. (http://www.vortexracingproducts.com.au/)
