Kruseman Motorsports to Hit the Road on Six Week Tour
(Ventura, CA) Following the July 4th Perris Auto Speedway USAC/CRA event, Cory Kruseman and his trio of development drivers will travel to the Midwest this summer to challenge the very best non-wing sprint car drivers in the country. Competing in 25 events during a six week period, the team will field a stable of Viper Chassis supported by LUCAS OIL and AGROMIN SOIL PRODUCTS for drivers Cory Kruseman, rookies Austin Mero and Henry Clarke as well as second year driver, Alex Schutte to wheel.
Kruseman, Mero & Clarke are scheduled to compete in USAC Indiana Sprint Week, the sprint car portion of USAC Indiana Midget Week and the Sprint Bandit Tour~N~Topless (TNT) tour. In between these series, Shutte is scheduled to join his rookie teammates competing locally in Indiana on a pair of action packed weekends. All four drivers are scheduled to compete in the MSCS $10,000 to win event at Tri-State Speedway (Haubstadt, IN) on August 2nd while Kruseman will be the lone entry in the $30,000 to win Ultimate Challenge in Oskaloosa, IA on August 5th.
With the winningest driver in Indiana Sprint Week history and two time Champion as their mentor, these young drivers (Mero 16, Clarke 18 & Schutte 19) understand how difficult just making the shows can be. “It’s tough to go back there and compete with guys that run these tracks every week, but to have the opportunity to get so much seat time in a short time period will be invaluable to their progress as a driver” stated Kruseman.
Good Luck to the whole crew! They are a bright bunch and going to go far. Would have like to see them show what they had at the last GS, but circumstances got the best of 'em.
Austin Mero, Henry Clarke and Alex Schutte are all nice and classy young men Cory and their families can be proud of and will represent well as they gain experience.
When they compete with the lil' ol Bandits they are a joy to see roll into the pits. Good Luck and have fun!
