GRASS VALLEY, CA- (1-01-14) – A potential sprint car super team has formed in Northern California for the upcoming 2014 race season. Main Motorsports, based out of Grass Valley, CA, has hired 7-time sprint car driving champion Sean Becker, of Roseville, to pilot the family owned #35m. The team will tackle the entire Civil War Series and King of California Series in 2014. Along with the Civil War and KWS schedules, the team will race the Gold Cup, Fall Nationals and selected ASCS shows. In total, 35 shows are slated for 2014.
The team will utilize FK Shocks, A.R.T. Speed Equipment components with backing from H.A.M Construction. Main and Becker are no strangers when it comes to sprint car racing. Becker piloted the #35m back in 2006 and 2007 where they won 14 main events including the 2006 Dave Bradway Jr. event at Silver Dollar Speedway. “It’s going to be fun racing with Sean again,” said Kyle Main. “Our family has been out of weekly sprint car racing for a while and Sean is the only reason we are putting this team back together.” Main states that this is a family affair with his parents, brother and uncle along with local friends who will be pitching in to help.
“I feel we can win a lot of races this year,” said Sean Becker. “I have wanted the opportunity to get back on the road and try and win a King of the West title while still competing in the Civil War Series.” Becker has won the last two Silver Dollar Speedway titles and now has three championships overall at Chico to go along with three Civil War titles. Becker has amassed 76 sprint car wins in his career. “I have to thank the Main’s for this exciting opportunity in 2014 and I think we can be a real factor at every race in 2014,” said Becker.
