The Victor Pfluger Racing team is back in business. VPR will be attending the Shasta Open Show in Anderson, Ca with an all-star team in attendance. "We are so happy and proud of our relationships that we have been fortunate enough to make through Victor’s career, and for that, we want to thank everyone involved." Quoted team owner Art Pfluger.
Victor will be driving the VPR Super Late Model entry owned by Jerry Blaco of Redding, Ca known as the Z2 Car. Victor’s had great success with this car, even winning a race against 3 time NASCAR Truck Series Champion Ron Hornaday. "Ron was a great and gracious competitor: it was a wonderful win!" Victor told the press after the event.
VPR has assembled a great team for the Shasta Open Show which is being sponsored in part by the US Army. The team will be led by long time VPR crew chief Chuck LaHorgue. "His insight and ability to assemble an amazing team has brought in some highly valued team members, including Tony Wilhelmson and Mike Ketka. These guys are long time friends and supporters with the “never say die” attitude that makes this team a race winning effort." Art, Victor's father continued.
"We are really looking forward to this race! Shasta is a great facility and we had an awesome time there last year. I understand that the show is going to be even better this year under the auspices of the new promoter Rick Faeth." It will be a lot of fun to see all our friends from the west coast in their own location." Said Victor.
Shasta Raceway Park is practically in Jack Waterman's backyard. Art wrote, "Jack has worked on our website for many years with little return from us other than more requests to change this and add that on our site. He of course always gets the job done without any fuss and usually makes great suggestions along the way. We appreciate what he does."
Victor will be driving in two classes, both the Super Late Models and the fiercely competed Modified Series. VPR’s decision to run the Modified race raises the bar of expectations and allows the team the opportunity to fight for a win for car owner Rick Fasano of Glendale Arizona.
VPR is also proud to announce that this will be their first event supporting the Racing4reasons.com campaign. Racing4 reasons exists because of the hard work of family and team friend Julian Wray. Wray created the organization based on supporting charitable causes through mainstream motorsports marketing. "We take pride in the fact that we can be associated with such a wonderful organization. We invite everyone to please take a look at the www.racing4reasons.com site and see the awesome things that Mr.Wray is attempting to accomplish. " Urged Art.
"We are proudly attending this event with the support of our long time relationships; Parker Farms, Copperstate Tire, Maxima Oil, Racing4reasons, AlpineStars, AZ Pro Signs, Pimp Hammer Clothing, LaHorgue Race Cars, JWwebs.com, Mondello Tech, LifeLock, Bud Harvey, Galen Puccini, Carl Phlum, and A.J.Promotions. Without each and everyone of these people we could not attend this event.
Thank you to everyone involved. We are VERY excited and couldn’t do it without you. Wish us Luck!"
