Aliso, Viejo, Ca., 01/21/2012) - Hilborn Fuel Injection is proud to announce that it will be the series sponsor of the Tri-State Race Saver (TSRS) Sprint Car class for the 2012 race season.
The announcement ceremony and local media coverage added excitement to the packed TSRS booth at the Motorsports Show in Oaks, Pennsylvania on January 21. During the ceremony the sponsor check was formally presented to the regional director of the TSRS, Joe Grandinetti, by Hilborn Fuel Injection’s Andrew Starr.
“In the short time span of this weekend I have found that the staff and racers of the TSRS are truly one big family. Their commitment to putting on a tremendous show for the fans is, perhaps, only superceded by their commitment to make racing fun,” commented Hilborn’s Andrew Starr. “The buzz over this class is infectious, and we are excited to be a part of it. We hope that our involvement will only help its growth as a premier venue that allows racers from all walks to compete competitively,” he added.
The transition from the TSRS series to the Hilborn TSRS series culminated with the unveiling of a new logo on the wing of Joe’s 2011 championship winning car displayed at the Motorsports show. The #1 car, driven by the talented Christopher Allen Jr., will once again race for the championship in 2012 using the same Hilborn power as last year.
The TSRS series, founded by regional director Joe Grandinetti, has seen the series grow primarily due to consistency in his approach to rules and conduct, while also drawing from the many years of racing experience he accumulated since returning to the race track back in 1968.
“Since this is a recreational sprint car series we follow the rules to the letter,” states Joe. “This ensures that even those with a $4,000 engine, such as in our championship winning car, are just as competitive as those with a $15,000 engine.”
Joe is particularly proud of his racers when it comes to conduct, frequently praising them for racing six features last year that went green to checker with no stops in racing action. But make no mistake, this racing is full bore with plenty of excitement.
Joe is supported at the races by a volunteer staff which includes Doug Suiter (Head Tech), Ray McCabe (Race Director), Lisa Case (Handicapper), and a host of other volunteers such as Ken Raively and Andy Heideman.
