Pittsburgh, PA — (May 5th, 2014) — Danny Holtgraver and Hunter Racing are pleased to announce that Tom & Fran Chiappelli of ‘Old School Snacks/Golden Flavor Sesame Sticks’ will join forces with the Hunter Racing ‘10H’ team as a major sponsor for the remaining portion of the 2014 racing season. Tom & Fran Chiappelli, notorious for their ‘Golden Flavor Sesame Sticks’ sponsored no. 98 ‘410’ sprinter that toured much of Central Pennsylvania for many, many seasons, have always supported Danny Holtgraver throughout his young career, and will now team back up with the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native for the rest 2014. The new deal will initiate very soon; with the Hunter Racing ‘10H’ proudly displaying their new sponsor on the top wing. Holtgraver drove Tom & Fran’s familiar ‘98’ during select dates back in 2012.

“This is a great opportunity for this entire team…I can’t thank Tom and Fran Chiappelli enough for wanting to be a part of this race team” explained Danny Holtgraver, “Actually, I need to thank Pup Nystrom for this…Pup has worked along side my Dad and I for a long team…he plays a vital role on this race team…he’s actually the one who set this deal up with the Chiappelli’s…I’m just really thankful that this is all going to work out…I want to thank Rob Hunter again, too…he’s stuck by my side through thick and thin…there’s a lot less pressure involved when you know your car owner believes in you…it’s been a great start to the year…we’re gonna try to keep it going!”

Danny Holtgraver and Hunter Racing will keep their 2014 season rolling this Friday and Saturday, May 9th & 10th with two (2), $5,000-to-win, UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions’ programs in Western Pennsylvania. The UNOH All Star ‘Ohio Region/National’ weekend will kick-off on Friday evening, May 9th at the Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania.
