NEW HAMBURG, ON- After a 2014 season that took his family-run Morphy Racing team across Ontario, en route to the Canadian Vintage Modified Rookie of the Year title, Jerrid Morphy has announced plans for an even busier Summer in 2015.
“In our shop, we like to keep things fresh,” laughs Morphy.
The former Karting standout will compete fulltime with the Lucas Oil TQ Can-Am Midgets this coming season, with hopes of earning the 2015 Rookie of the Year title.
Morphy will pilot a car purchased from the stable of multi-time club champion Mack Deman, and looks forward to debuting with the club when their season kicks off in May.
“We just brought the car home last week and I already can’t wait to get it to the speedway,” beams Morphy. “It’s top shelf equipment. I think as soon as the driver gets up to speed with the car, we’ll have a chance to have a tonne of fun this Summer”
The new endeavor will take Morphy’s team across the province, something the New Hamburg, ON resident fell in love with during his freshman campaign with the Canadian Vintage Modifieds in 2014.
“I think the touring aspect was what I enjoyed most about our season last year,” says the soft-spoken sophomore. “Being able to race at as many different facilities as we can is our goal for 2015, and I think between our Vintage Mod commitments and our TQ Midget, we’ll be able to race just about everywhere”
While Morphy’s primary commitments will be with his TQ Midget, he’s quick to note that does not mean the Morphy Racing team will not field entries at Canadian Vintage Modified events this season.
“We own two Canadian Vintage Modifieds and plan on fielding entries in every tour event in 2015. Our #14 will compete fulltime, and if there happens to be a schedule conflict with the TQ Midgets, we’ll have a fill-in driver behind the wheel”
Morphy’s second Vintage Mod – purchased early in the off-season – will also make its debut in 2015 and will serve as a driver development program for Morphy Racing.
Marketing support for Jerrid Morphy’s busy 2015 season will be provided by Young Drivers of Canada, EPIC Racewear by OnePromo.ca, Steve Lyons of Creative Edge Signs & Graphics and Ron Easton of Oakville Trailers.
