For the first time in their short history, BK Racing will be running three cars when the NASCAR circus moves to Darlington, South Carolina. The ex-Team Red Bull squad, which currently has both Landon Cassill's no. 83 and the no.93 in the top 35 owners’ points, will debut the no. 73 this weekend with Travis Kvapil behind the wheel.
36-year-old Kvapil, from Wisconsin, scored the team's best result yet last week at Talladega, taking 16th place in the no.93, which will be taken over this week by David Reutimann, who raced for the team at Daytona.
“I’m really excited to be racing at Darlington,” Kvapil said. “I want to thank Dr Pepper and BK Racing for putting this together. It’s a big step for BK Racing to field a third car. We didn’t open our doors until February and we’ve managed to make every race and stay inside the top-35 in points. Now we’re fielding a third entry. That says a lot about our progress and this team’s determination.”
“The guys at the shop are working really hard to prepare the car and get everything ready for this weekend. We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished so far and hope that this race is another step in our growth.”
