"I worked for my dad when I got out of high school for about three years in construction so to come back and pound nails and cut boards, it's something I enjoy to do, it's great working with these guys and we're having a fun time putting it together. We did a lot of improvements, hopefully made the place a little nicer, I think we've had a lot of positive feedback from a lot of people and the racers. I think we're gonna have a lot of cars and that's gonna be one of the main attractions, I think we're gonna have a lot of great drivers from all over the state and hopefully that brings the people out and they'll really enjoy what we've all done."

Newsline 9 will proudly sponsor the number 52 Chevy at State Park Speedway this summer.  The "house" car will driven by Scott or Chris Wimmer when they are available to race.
