Ben Rowe to Team Up with Crooks Racing Inc. for PASS South Events
Jul 13, 2009 - updated Jul 13th, 2009 9:27pm
Web posted by

Mooresville, NC. --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:7/13/09

Crooks Racing Inc., owned by short track crew chief Gary Crooks, along with PASS South and National points leader Ben Rowe are proud to announce that the two will partner up for three of the six remaining PASS South series events on the 2009 schedule. The two will kick off their relationship immediately starting this weekend in the Daniel Boone Classic 125 at the Newport Speedway in Tennessee.

Rowe who won the first two PASS South events of the year at Dillon and at Hickory will pilot Crooks’ #4 Crooks Racing Inc. Chevy Impala while Gary will call the shots for the team in hopes of aiding Rowe on his hunt for the 2009 PASS South series title. In addition to Newport Speedway this weekend, the two have marked a minimum of two more events on their calendar. The next will be on August 8th at Orange County Speedway and then again on August 29th at the Hickory Motor Speedway where the two actually battled against each other for the win in the 2009 Easter Bunny 150. Crooks who called the shots and lead the most laps as the crew chief of Canadian driver Lonnie Sommerville and Rowe, then driving for Richard Moody Racing, eventually became the event winner never knowing that the two would be on the same team just a few months later.

“This really all came together in a few days. My marketing and pr guy Chris Ragle at Tex Motorsports Marketing sent me a text message saying he had talked to Ben at Greenville-Pickens about what he was going to do for the rest of the year and that he wasn’t sure and thought we should try to put something together and we did. I was actually down in Charleston (SC) for vacation and decided to come back a day early so I could talk with Ben,” stated Crooks.

For the first race of the new venture Rowe will be on his own this weekend as prior commitments for Gary have him attempting to defend his IWK 250 title at the Riverside Int’l Speedway with NASCAR driver Regan Smith at the wheel. Last season the Smith and Crooks combo won the race in their first attempt together and with the NASCAR Sprint Cup series off this weekend the opportunity to defend their title was too appealing to turn down.

“This is a pretty cool deal for me and I’m excited about Newport this weekend. I know from racing against Gary over the years that anything he touches is top quality and it’s a privilege to be the guy to climb behind the wheel of his new car. Having him on my side for a change could bring some good things for both us in the future, hopefully a PASS South championship. I’m pretty sure that would be a first in PASS, winning a championship with three different race teams,” said Rowe.

For more information on Crooks Racing Inc. and the services they provide contact Gary Crooks directly at 704-224-6672 or visit his website at www.crooksracinginc.com for more information.
