By Gary Thomas
Roseville, CA – March 4, 2020…Roseville, California based Canales Racing and driver Colby Copeland are geared up to launch an assault on the King of the West-NARC 410 Sprint Car Series and Sprint Car Challenge Tour titles this season, as they welcome several new partners aboard the team.
Car owners Tracy and Vicki Canales are excited to announce that Jeff Wolsleben with Econo Lube N’ Tune & Brakes, Ed Gerber with Eagle Companies Inc., Vince Harris with Geico Insurance, Scott Lynch with American River Overhead Door Inc., FVP and NOS Energy Drink have partnered with Canales Racing for the 2020 racing season.
“We are thrilled to welcome a number of great companies to our team this coming season,” Tracy Canales commented. “We also look forward to having Colby Copeland back behind the wheel once again with our son Trevor spinning the wrenches. As a team this will certainly be our biggest year to date with a healthy mix of Winged 410 and Winged 360 Sprint Car racing throughout the state, along with a trip to Knoxville planned in August. We’re truly thankful to have the support from our new and returning companies this season.”
As noted, Copeland and the No. 5C team are set to compete for the championship with both the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu 410 Sprint Car Series and the Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards in 2020. The combination will also race in several other selected events this year. In addition to that, Trent Canales will also continue to race for the family-owned team and compete in select Winged 360 events during the season.
Last year saw Copeland and the Canales Racing team bring home a sixth-place finish in the Sprint Car Challenge Tour standings, having made the trip to 10 of the 12 events. The soon-to-be 28-year-old racer started out this season by earning a runner up finish during his preliminary night at the Chili Bowl Nationals, locking him into his third career Saturday night finale at the event. He also picked off a King of the West-NARC victory last season at the Petaluma Speedway in June.
“I’m really excited to have Econo Lube N’ Tune & Brakes, Eagle Companies Inc. and all of our new partners make it possible to run full-time with KWS-NARC and SCCT this season,” commented Copeland. “We have a great schedule put together with Canales Racing in 2020 and hope to start off solid right out of box. I also want to thank Tracy and Vicki Canales for the opportunity to pilot the 5C once again this year.”
