PINE RIVER, ONTARIO (March 28, 2013) – One of the strongest-running teams in the Quick 32 Sportsman Series presented by NAPA Auto Parts will be back for the upcoming 2013 season, but the car will be basically the same as last season.
“We will be running the same car with basically the same setup, “said Marvin Grubb, owner of the Grubb Racing Top Sportsman 2011 Pontiac GXP team. “There won’t be any real changes.”
Darrin Grubb will once again drive the GXP, which is a Chris Duncan Racing Cars product and powered by a 706-cubic inch Chevy engine from Par Racing. Behind the big engine is a Hutch’s Transmission Service Powerglide, which propels the car down the quarter-mile in the low seven-second range at speeds approaching 200 mph.
Crew chief on the team is Mike Dennis, with Marvin and Barb Grubb rounding out the effort.
Sponsorship is provided by Marvin’s Automotive Service Ltd., Pennzoil, Hutch’s Transmission Service, Ideal Supply, Chris Duncan Race Cars, Foris Signs and Par Racing Engines.
Grubb mentioned the car is assembled for the new season, adding the team is hoping to get some testing in before opening day, which is May 10-11 at US 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, Michigan, the first of six events for the Quick 32 Sportsman Series.
The Quick 32 Sportsman Series will compete several times this year with its two companion series, the Pro Modified Racing Association and the Pro Bike & Sled Series, offering a colorful and exciting package of drag racing action. The Quick 32 Sportsman Series www.Quick32.ca will compete at all these events in conjunction with its companion series, the Pro Modified Racing Association, www.PMRA.ca, and the Pro Bike & Sled Series www.PBSS.ca, providing an exciting, colorful, and complete show of the best in drag racing action.
