CURT MICHAEL SET FOR 7TH SEASON WITH BBJG, INC.
By Brad Vores for Curt Michael Racing/BBJG, Inc. Racing
Curt Michael’s 2013 season is complete proof that there is way more to life than driving a sprint car.
Michael, one of the most successful 360 sprint car racers on the East Coast, saw his season put on the backburner when his wife Jennifer was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent several surgeries. Reality hit and family came first.
Despite a short season and some tough nights on the track when they did compete, Curt and the Bill Gallagher owned BBJG, Inc. team will be back for a seventh season together in 2014.
“I can’t thank Bill, his family and the 5G team enough for sticking with me and my family, not only this past year, but for the entire time we’ve been racing together,” said Curt. “Obviously Jenn was my first and foremost priority this year and she is doing well now so we’re looking at getting back on track next season and racing up front.”
The team will run 360 and 410 sprint car races with Brandon Weibley as it's new crew chief.
“We just need to get back out there and prove we can still be competitive and Bill certainly provides us with the best equipment to do so,” he added. “It’s really hard to believe this will be our seventh year together already.”
“We are also very fortunate to have some great sponsors behind us and all of them will return to the team again next year,” he added. Sponsors on the green No. 5G sprint car include Valley Forge, Inc., GEI Enterprises, Inc. Heffner Racing Enterprises, Lelands.com, Triple X Race Cars, Kruger Trailers, Inc., K & N High Flow Filters, Louie’s Pizza on the Boardwalk at Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
