At age 32, Dover, PA sprint car driver Chad Trout announced today his plans to compete on the 2012 Rislone URC Sprint Series.
Trout owns fourteen 358 sprint car victories in his career, collecting wins at tracks like Lincoln, Port Royal and Williams Grove. He competed weekly at what could very well be the toughest sprint car tracks in the county and now he’s taking on the Rislone URC Series. All three tracks have race dates booked for 2012 with the United Racing Company, so Trout will be very comfortable when he rolls in to these three tracks. When asked why he plans to run URC, Trout responded, ” I think URC give a fair payout and does more to help the racers then any other organization”.
Trout is the owner of his sprint car that will carry the number 7C. Sponsorship support for Trout Racing includes Jiffy Lube of Mechanicsburg and Carlisle, PA, Marlowe’s Metal Fabricating, Travis Racing Engines and Lee Components. Trout’s favorite track is, “Anyone that I can win at”, a fairly typical answer from any sprint car driver.
The United Racing Company is proud to have Chad Trout join their roster for the coming season. There is no doubt that URC has turned up the heat on competition over the past few years. With higher purses through special events, bonus money and an attractive point fund payout, URC is catching the eye of drivers and owners looking for an attractive payout and an alternative to the 410 sprints.
You have to race hard and beat the best if you’re looking for that big payday. Competition remains tough in URC and that is demonstrated by URC having numerous winners and very few drivers that could win more then three races last season. In 2011, twenty-two Rislone URC events took place and delivered fourteen different winners. Five drivers scored double victories including Ed Aikin, Curt Michael, Daryn Pittman, Randy West and Dave Ely. JJ Grasso was the only driver to score four wins in 2011. URC had four drivers who scored their first career win on the Rislone URC Sprint tour and the list includes Daryn Pittman, Shane Stewart, Davie Franek and Canadian sprint car driver Steve Poirier.
Three rookie drivers have already registered to chase the URC Rookie of the Year Title including Dan Mazy of Alburtis, PA, Steve Downs of Georgetown, DE and Chris Glenden of Delmar, DE.
Expected top contenders planning to run the Rislone URC Series in 2012 include Ed Aikin, Josh Weller, Robbie Stillwaggon, Randy West, Kramer Williamson, Jonathan Swanson, Joey Biasi, 2011 URC Rookie of the Year Troy Betts, Art Liedl, Tim Hogue and Andy Best.
URC is a tough place to race and we have no plans to change that, in fact, ” Where URC is concerned, We don’t make winning easy” !
URC will soon announce their 2012 Rislone URC Sprint Series schedule for 2012.
