From the NATIONAL SPEEDSPORT NEWS:

 

Carson McCarl Gets Sprint Car Ride

During the 2013 World of Outlaw STP Sprint Car Series race in Elko, Minn., Carson McCarl and Rick Mastell met for the first time, and the duo bonded over racing.

It led to a trio of races to close out last season, ultimately putting them together in 2014 kicking off at the Ronald Laney Memorial at East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Fla.

“I am very excited to work with the Mastell Family in 2014,” said Carson McCarl, son of veteran racer Terry McCarl. “We hit it off at an Outlaw Race in Elko, Minn., last year, and raced a little, and decided to try to run together in 2014. He likes East Bay Raceway Park, so it is the perfect place for us to kick our season off.”

At the end of the 2013 season, the duo did race together, and had pretty good results as they picked up a couple of top-10 finishes, and were running inside the top-five until some mechanical issues knocked them out of contention.

“Our family really likes Carson and the McCarl family, and we are all hoping that everything goes well in Florida so we can run a lot of races this year,” Rick Mastell said. “We all enjoy this great sport, and two racing families coming together should be a great fit for everyone.”

Kicking their season off at the Ronald Laney Memorial, where the team will look to become the King of the 360′s. McCarl will be under the guidance of Mastell’s son, Stephen, acting as the crew chief, as well as Joe Kouba assisting on the set ups.

The hope in 2014 for the Mastell Brothers Trailer Service No. 27 is to compete often at the Knoxville Raceway as well as competing with the Upper Midwest Sprint Car Series (UMSS), both with their 360ci power-plant bolted in their machine.

“It is shaping up to be a really good year for our team, and I am hopeful that we are strong right out of the trailer at East Bay,” McCarl added. “I have to thank everyone who made this possible, and again, I am very excited to race a lot in 2014.”

Hey Wingdinger,,, relax a little... The release says that they had a couple of top ten finishes,, I take a couple as meaning 2.  It doesn't say a couple of UMSS top ten finishes,, just a couple of top ten finishes. I personally don't know where they all ran last year but I do welcome them to the UMSS.

I'm just guessing on this one but I'd think with the last name McCarl Carson might have a little more success landing sponsors.  We know that he's got the right pedigree and he grew up watching his dad run at the highest level of the sport.  He probably was out in the shop with a wrench in his hand before he was out of diapers.  I can totally underestand putting him in the car.  It's going to coax a few fans who enjoyed watching his dad out to the track as well.  Score another point if Terry drops a 360 in and tows up this way to run a couple UMSS shows like he did last summer on the Friday of the OWN at SCVR.  That can only help generate interest in the UMSS and our local tracks.  wink
