  • Jairo Avila Jr. to drive for Lira at Kansas: Jairo Avila Jr. will return to the ARCA Racing Series, with the season finale at Kansas Speedway. The 20-year-old from Alhambra, Calif. who goes by JA Junior, will once again drive for Lira Motorsports. Avila debuted at Pocono Raceway for Lira in August. He’ll be behind the wheel of Lira’s No. 36 car on Friday night, October 16. “I feel really excited to come back and race in the ARCA Series," Avila said. “This will be my first time racing at Kansas Speedway. I've been practicing a lot on my iRacing simulator to prepare for the race. Also, I learned a lot in my first race at Pocono, so I feel I will be able to get a better result at Kansas than I had in my debut.” Avila’s car will be sponsored by Art General Contractor, Inc., as well as Lira Motorosports season-long partners Momo, TraqGear and Ford Performance. Art General Contractors is a highly rated, fully-licensed contracting company based in Los Angeles, California. (In part from Lira Motorsports PR) (10-12-15)
  • Grant Enfinger; GMS Racing secure Kansas primary sponsor: GMS Racing officials announced that longstanding partner Champion Power Equipment, a leading supplier of durable engine powered products, will be the primary sponsor of the No. 23 car driven by Grant Enfinger for Kansas Speedway on Friday, October 16. This will mark Champion’s first primary sponsorship in the motorsports realm. “Champion Power Equipment has been an invaluable partner to GMS Racing, both on the track and back at our race shop. Their equipment has become synonymous with dependability and without it our teams would feel the void, week in and week out,” said Nic Moncher, team manager. “There is no better way for our two organizations to expand our already strong partnership, than to see the No. 23 Champion Power Equipment Chevrolet take to the track at Kansas Speedway, with Grant Enfinger behind the wheel.” (In part from GMS Racing PR) (10-12-15)
