By Bruce F. Mehlenbacher, Director of Operations
August 18, 2005, Tonawanda, NY - Veteran Pro Modified racer Mike Stawicki from Medina, New York will debut his all new Stealth 67 Pro Modified Camaro built by G-Force Race Cars Inc. www.GForceRaceCars.com at this upcoming Pro Modified Racing Association (PMRA), www.promodifiedracing.com event at Lancaster Motorsports Park in Clarence, New York this Friday (August 19) presented by: G-Force Race Cars, Jan-Cen Racing Engines and Oddy's Racing Inc.
Stawicki, who has been racing in the popular Pro Modified division since the late 1980’s, is excited about the new car. “This is going to be a good car,” stated Stawicki. “It is definitely our best effort to date. I’m really proud of my entire team, especially owner Jim Salemi and shop foreman Dave Smith from G-Force Race Cars, along with Ted Arts from Isolation Systems for all their relentless time and effort to make this a reality for me,” he added. “Without them I would never be able to do this. I’m just really excited to get back on the track and make some runs”.
The new car is the first body from the Cynergy Composite molds that were purchased from Aussie Murray Anderson. Crew Chief Jim Salemi says, “This is an awesome body, one of the best that I have ever had to work with. Tim Hodgins from Cynergy Composites has done a great job with reproduction of the body and Murray Anderson did an awesome job creating it. We have gone back to basics as far as our chassis design is concerned and has seemed to work well in our initial testing. Now we are just excited to go racing and do as well as we can”. Stawicki will compete on the IHRA trail as much as possible from now to the end of the year.
He will also compete at the remaining PMRA races. “I would love to run at Indy as well but everyone that has supported the AMS deal this year gets first shot at going. We will be ready if they call. The PMRA races are nice cause they are close to home and pay well to win. Plus it’s always nice to support a hometown series. We will race as much as possible from now until the end of the year.” Stawicki Racing thanks all of its sponsors and supporters including: G-Force Race Cars Inc., Stawicki Used Cars, Isolation Systems, Strange Engineering, Weld Racing, Mastin Engineering, Hot Rods by Burke, Cynergy Composites, DMPE Inc, Vici Promotions, 1320 Web Services, and Drag Racing Online.
