One of the most exciting things about this seasons XLI Pro Dirt Series is the number of rookie drivers who are making their way into the Late Model ranks.
Aaron Hancock is one of those drivers and with a successful career already in Speedway, he is sure to impress many in a short time.
Racing in the AMCA division for a number of years, Hancock showed a lot of speed and skill as he raced to many feature wins and this is something he is going to build on now that he has stepped up into the Late Models.
“We had a season off last season building our Late Model after coming out of AMCA’s,” says Aaron. “With a budget we purchased an older car as a roller and built a new 410 for the car.”
Now that the car is ready and after having a go at Pithara in the Development Series, Hancock is now ready to achieve his dream and race the thunder and lightning Late Models competitively.
“Racing Late Models has been something I’ve always wanted to do since I was a kid,” he muses. “Now we have had the opportunity to do it and I am really looking forward to the challenge.”
Of course, being his first season he has set some realistic aims and hopes to impress his sponsors.
“My goal for this season is to learn about the cars and just get some laps in,” he says. “By the end of the season I would to see us running consistently in the XLI Pro Dirt Series. This would be a great way to thank all my sponsors E&H Staphorst Mechanical, Kumho Tyres, Narrogin Bearing Service, Westar Excavators, Sand Stone Steel Contracting, Rorsam Racing and O’Rourke Transport.”
“I would also like to thank Paul and Greg Joss for their continued support in helping my team get the new car ready for this season, not to mention a special thanks to my old man and the crew for all the hours they have put into the car.”
