NEW HAMBURG, ON- After an off-season full of planning and preparation, Karting graduate Jerrid Morphy is ready for his first career start with the famed Canadian Vintage Modified.
“It’s like waiting for Christmas morning”, explains Morphy when asked about his excitement towards this Saturday’s event. “I’ve had a couple testing sessions which were an absolute blast. It’s been a long off-season of staring at this car. I can’t wait to fire it up this weekend!”
After earning the 2013 Masters Division champion in Karting, Morphy has acquired a chassis from former CVM regular Jason Dinsmore, with hopes of earning the 2014 Rookie of the Year title.
“The Canadian Vintage Modified roster is full of incredibly talented drivers”, says Morphy. “The fact that my job, night in and night out, is to figure out a way to beat them, is what makes this transition so exciting”
“Our team has never been one to shy away from competition”, continues the personable Rookie. “We were looking for a new challenge, and we’ve definitely found it here. I couldn’t be more happy with our decision”
The entire Jerrid Morphy Racing team would like to thank Young Drivers of Canada, Steve Lyons of Creative Edge Signs & Graphics and Ron Easton of Oakville Trailers for making this 2014 season possible.
The first round of the Canadian Vintage Modified season is schedule for May 17th at Flamboro Speedway with a 6:00pm start. Gate times and ticket prices are available at www.FlamboroSpeedway.net.
Jerrid has launched a brand new ‘Morphy Racing’ page on Facebook to help fans stay up to date all season long, and can also be found on Twitter @MorphyRacing.
