MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Kyle Weatherman, the 2015 ARCA Racing Series SCOTT Rookie of the Year, will pilot the No. 98 for Mason Mitchell Motorsports this weekend at the Madison Int’l Speedway in the Montgomery Ward 200.
“I’ve always looked up to Mason as an owner and driver,” Weatherman said. “I love how he handles everything he does with the team. He works on the cars every week, as do I, so I understand how much work and dedication he has. The MMM guys prepare race winning cars every week and I am glad to be able to get behind the wheel of the No. 98 car this weekend at Madison.”
“Madison is a different short track than what we are used to in ARCA. The corners are very tight and saving tires is going to be very important.”
Mitchell, the 2014 ARCA Racing Series champion driver and owner, has raced against Weatherman in the past, with the duo finishing 1-2 at the Iowa Speedway last season.
“Kyle is a very talented race car driver and I am glad to have him on the team this weekend,” said Mitchell. “I always like racing against Kyle. He races hard every lap and is smart behind the wheel. He understands how to save his equipment and be in position to win at the end of the race. We are looking forward to working with him this weekend and hopefully end up in victory lane at the end of the day on Sunday.”
Weatherman enters the ninth race of the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards season tied for third in driver championship standings. He drove in the first eight races for Lira Motorsports, but the team has opted not to enter the race at Madison this weekend.
Weatherman has one prior start at the half-mile track located in Oregon, Wis. in 2014, where he finished seventh.
