Travis Kittleson Joins Up With Mac Hill Motorsports

Concord, NC --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:May 29, 2008

Young Racer has Three Nationwide Series Races Planned



After testing the waters in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (formerly Busch Series), Travis Kittleson found a racing avenue he would like to make a home. In doing that, he also found that it is nearly impossible with a small, family-owned team. Kittleson successfully qualified for some races in the past couple years, but lacked the resources to live up to his potential in the series.

On the other side of the spectrum, the #56 Mac Hill Motorsports team has sat idle for the 2008 NASCAR Nationwide Series season due to being without a driver and primary sponsor.

So it was only natural for driver and team to find each other. That’s why today Mac Hill Motorsports has announced they have hired Kittleson to run at least three NASCAR Nationwide Series events for the team. Kittleson will race at Nashville Superspeedway, O’Reilly Raceway Park and The Milwaukee Mile, with the possibility of an expanded schedule if sponsorship is found.

Kittleson is excited about returning to NASCAR’s second highest division without the pressures of running the entire team as well as driving the racecar.

“It takes a little bit of pressure off me,” said Kittleson. “Right now, the team and I are both in a situation where we can help each other out. They are lacking the funding and a marketing partner to go and race, and we are fortunate to have the support of Bob Steele Chevrolet and are in a position to look for more support. I need to get to the track, and there is nothing better than to be involved with a high profile series like the NASCAR Nationwide Series.”

The Mac Hill team is one that Kittleson is proud to be associated with, given their past record in the series.

“They haven’t raced in the Nationwide Series yet this year, but they have stayed on top of their game by running the USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series. I know that everyone in the shop is going to be good and fresh, and I feel pretty confident going into Nashville.”

All three races currently on Kittleson’s schedule are at venues where he has raced at before – whether in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series or on the now-defunct ASA National Tour.

“I’ve raced at all of those tracks, which is nice. It should be a short learning curve. I just need to knock the dust off and get used to running a heavier car again. I haven’t been to Milwaukee in about four years or ORP in that same time, but those tracks don’t really change. I just need to get in the groove and I’ll be good.”

And with a little bit of extra help, Kittleson and the #56 team could go a long way.

“We’re seeking additional marketing partners to help the team grow,” said Kittleson. “There is a lot of potential here, I believe, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds.”

Those who are interested in discussing any driving or marketing opportunities with Kittleson can contact R/T Racing at (321) 693-8502.
