  • KBR Development shuts down; selling equipment: KBR Development, which has competed in the ARCA Menards Series since 2018, has announced that it has shut down. Team owner Mike Bursley posted the following message on the team's website announcing the decision.
    "In the 20+ years that I've been involved in motorsports as either a team member, driver, crew chief, a manufacturer, owner, or representing an organization in the sport, I’ve been blessed to have worked side by side with a number of great people along with a lot of the past and present industry leaders. Over those years, together we have won our fair share of races all while losing our share. We’ve set records, battled through many sleepless nights rebuilding cars and traveling, been involved in different rivalries and altercations, and along the way met a number of great people/friends. Through all that, I’ve been blessed to have either been crowned or part of a number of different Championships but like most things eventually they come to an end. To all the past and present team members, the number of different drivers, the variety of marketing partners, customers, to my family and the people that have supported & cheered along over the years, I want to say THANK YOU, it's been fun and was quite the ride." *KBR will be posting items/contact info and selling off the remainder of its assets over the next few weeks.
