FONTANA, Calif. (January 29, 2020) – With the 2020 racing season right around the corner Race teams are working non-stop on putting finishing touches on cars, rounding up drivers and team members and looking at what’s ahead of them for the year. All the while every team member from the owners to the drivers to the pit crews are anxious to get going and see what the season holds for them and the entire team. Sunrise Ford Racing is going into its 20th year of racing and we are eager to bring to you our talented Sunrise Ford Race Team going into the 2020 ARCA Menards Series West season along with a new partnership announcement that we are extremely excited about.
To kick things off with a bang the Sunrise Ford Racing Team is extremely excited and very proud to announce our new partnership with Stewart-Haas Racing Development. We will be involved with a driver development program with Stewart-Haas for our 2020 Sunrise Ford Racing Team. Our drivers will be under the guidance of some of the best in the business and have connections to one of the top ranked professional race organizations in the industry.
Race teams have to stay fresh and current to be competitive and in doing so changes have to be made from season to season and year to year. The 2020 Sunrise Ford Racing team is no exception to the rule. We have put together an outstanding lineup for the 2020 season and will be a highly competitive team on the track. With a new season comes a new team member, a new partnership, a new outlook, and a renewed drive to take that checkered flag at the finish of each and every race.
We will be moving into the 2020 season with the return of our 23 year old 2019 Sunrise Ford Racing Team driver Trevor Huddleston again strapping himself into the #6 Sunrise Ford sponsored Ford Fusion car. Trevor has a proven track record with the SFR Team and we are excited to bring him back with us for the 2020 season. Trevor will be guided and supported by returning Crew Chief Bill Sedgwick and his phenomenal crew.
A new Face to the Sunrise Ford Racing Team this year will be the 2019 Nascar Whelen All American Series Division 1 California State Champion Blaine Perkins getting behind the wheel of the #9 Sunrise Ford sponsored Ford Fusion car. Even though Blaine is new to the Sunrise Ford team he has years of experience on the track in multiple series. Blaine will see returning Crew Chief Jeff Schrader next to him along with top notch support from Schraders crew.
