INDIANAPOLIS (May 10, 2017) – After recently taking over driving duties aboard the Dooling Hayward No.63 sprint car, Thomas Jr. will also pilot the Dooling Hayward No.63 midget for the remainder of the season. Thomas Jr. will debut the SPIKE/Stanton combo during the 2018 P1 Insurance USAC National Indiana Midget Week. Dooling Hayward Motorsports and Thomas Jr. also plan to contend in the non-wing events running in conjunction with the Midget Week schedule.
“We like to have fun, and enjoy being at the races,” explained Joe Dooling, President at Dooling Hayward Motorsports. “Don’t get me wrong we like winning too. Kevin has already proven himself to us in the sprint car, and we decided to carry that over, and let him run the midget too. He’s competitive beyond measure, and gives 100% at each race. We’re enthusiastic about this partnership, and where things are headed in the future.”
When Thomas Jr. is not aboard his full time AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car ride with Hoffman Auto Racing, he will be piloting the No.63 sprint car at various races around the Midwest. Thomas Jr., who already boasts three wins aboard the No.63 has mapped out a 30 plus race schedule in the sprint car, as well as full time USAC National Midget events, for approximately 60 races under the Dooling Hayward banner.
“I can’t thank Joe (Dooling) and Brodie (Hayward) enough for their unconditional support,” commented Thomas Jr. “Actually, there was one condition, that we have fun doing it, and I’m definitely having fun. I’m beyond grateful. Winning is always the goal for me, and right now I’m incredibly blessed to be surrounded by so many great people. I’ve worked hard to get where I’m at, and I couldn’t do it without people like Joe and Brodie, and everyone else who’s helped me get to this point. Racing is full of high’s and low’s, and right now I’m fortunate to be a part of the high. Brad (Alexander) and Davey (Jones) are two of the best in the business, and I’m thankful to have them by my side.”
The Dooling Hayward Motorsports No. 63 midget and sprint car will be in competition at Montpelier Speedway, Tuesday, May 29th to kick off the P1 Insurance USAC National Indiana Midget Week.
