Buck brings with him a wealth of racing experience on his home track at CTMP as DJK Racing headed up by two-time Pinty’s Series Champion DJ Kennington will prepare the car he’ll drive. OMVIC (Ontario Motor Vehicle Industry Council), in their efforts to increase consumer awareness, has been involved in motorsports for some time. It’s a combination of experience and resources that has Buck very anxious to get started.
“I’ve known DJ for a long time and I know how hard he and his team work. I’m confident we’re in great equipment and with the races, instructing and other projects I’ve logged more laps around CTMP than I can count. Working together we’ll be able to set up the car for success,” said Buck.
The partnership with OMVIC brings together another group of people with ties that go back many years to Robin Buck. “It’s special because John Carmichael, OMVIC’s CEO, was the guy who first got me into stock cars; it’s nice to come full circle and partner together again”.
Having experience and chemistry working together is a big reason why Buck feels he’ll be a strong runner in the #28 OMVIC Dodge this coming weekend.
“Having the confidence in your equipment goes a long way” said Buck. “I know we’ll have a good car, that’s step one. Also knowing that you’ve got the people at OMVIC behind you is important, having partnered together in the past they know what I bring and having that belief and confidence in the program you’ve put together goes a long way. Now it’s up to the guy between the wheel and the seat,” he added.
