X-1R Pro Cup Series Approves New Engine and Chassis Packages for 2014 Season

CARS Series PR

Mooresville, NC 1/30/14 - Official from the Mooreville, North Carolina headquartered X-1R Pro Cup Series, formerly the Hooters Pro Cup Series, announce effective immediately the series will begin approving several new engine, chassis, and body combinations for competition in the 2014 season. 

The “Hamner Super Late Model Sealed Engine” built by Hamner Racing Engines is approved to compete in series competition when used in a Pro Cup built chassis with a Five Star Pro Cup flanged fit body. In addition to the Hamner engine package, the “Roush-Yates Spec Engine” as supplied by Robert Yates Racing Engines is also approved for competition when used in a newly allowed 105" or 110" Grand National chassis with a one piece composite body.       

These rule changes are being implemented to hopefully entice competitors with the newly approved equipment to compete with the X-1R Pro Cup Series on a more regular basis without the expense of purchasing totally new equipment. After extensive research and testing, these newly approved engine and car packages, along with the current Pro Cup Series approved packages, will make for close and competitive racing for all competitors going forward.

Pro Cup Series Rookie Reid Wilson Reflects On Successful 2013 Rookie Campaign

Huntersville, North Carolina Native Focused; Driven For 2014 Season

HUNTERSVILLE, North Carolina (January 17, 2014) - - Dubbed last year as one of “NASCAR’s future prospects to watch” by Motorsports Analytics, 17-year old Reid Wilson (@reidwilson66) is clearly living up to that hype. 

Giving them a taste of what’s yet to come, Wilson made the transition from Late Models to the X-1R Pro Cup Series last season and performed more like a profound veteran, rather than an inexperienced rookie.

However, it was the mentality of his willingness to learn, while earning the respect of his fellow competitors that transitioned into three top-fives and eight top-10s finishes in 10 races. Furthermore, the former INEX Legends car driver also became the second-youngest pole sitter in Pro Cup Series history after claiming the top spot at Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway in April.

While a mechanical issue halted his effort to win from the pole in his No. 66 Bojangles Chicken ‘n Biscuits Chevrolet that day, a string of eight consecutive top-10 finishes,  including career-bests of fifth (three times), most recently at Kingsport (Tenn.) Motor Speedway, has given the home schooled senior momentum to carry into the off season and more importantly, 2014.

“I’m very thankful for the opportunity I was given this year,” said Reid, who plans to aim for an engineering degree next year in college, while continuing to race. “Before our first race at Dillon Motor Speedway last season, we tried to set realistic goals for the year. We achieved most of them. But now, we’re focused on capitalizing on what we learned into the 2014 season.

“Without the partnership of Bojangles’, Planet Central, my family, friends and team, none of this would have been possible. We built some memories this year, but there’s still plenty more to be made.”
