Corvette Racing Sweeps Pit Stop Competition with One-Two Finish
CHARLOTTE, NC - Competition Race Parts Racing has announced that it will run Brian Kubinski in the 2008 SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge GT Championship. Kubinski, of Plainfield, Ill., will drive a C6 Chevrolet Corvette.
CRP Racing, based in Charlotte, N.C., is well known for its race prep and engineering services. Nicholas Short, of CRP, engineered Kubinski's Blackdog Racing C6 Corvette in 2007, which earned Kubinski two top-ten finishes in 2007, including a fifth-place finish at Mosport, and the 2007 Piloti SPEED GT Rookie of the Year Award.
"I do believe we have a chance to win races and contend for the Championship in 2008, Short said. We have the driver, we have the car, we have the engine package, and the resources of CRP Racing and Diamond Construction to take Brian Kubinski to the front of the pack.
CRP Racing is in the process of recruiting a second car to compete in the 2008 SPEED World Challenge GT or Touring Car Championship as teammate to Kubinski. Interested parties should contact Nicholas Short at CRP.
